Giuliana, Poremba Win Race to Taste
Sorry for the late post. I've been tied up with the final details of putting on the Community bank of Elmhurst 4 on the 4th. Among the many races this past weekend, the HumanaRace to Taste downtown stood out. Accolades go to the winners, who this year were Ryan Giuliano and Denise Poremba. Giuliano, 26, of Schaumburg, who has been doing triathlons, double races etc. etc., won in 15:52. He was followed by Derek Holland, 34, of Chicago, another well-known name on the local scene, who ran a 16:15. Nic Aubert, 23, of Crystal Lake, was third in 16:33. Poremba, 48, of Bridgeview, ran an 18:34. For now, I'll assume that's correct. That's a great time for a masters woman runner. Runner-up was Elizabeth Bilitz, 25, of Chicago, in 19:34, and third was taken by Stephanie Maisel, 29, of Chicago, in 20:06. There 1,149 finishers.
