F^3 Lake Half Marathon to Naughton, Czarnik
On a cold, wintery day on the Chicago lakefront, Neal Naughton and Jill Czarnik bested the men's and women's fields in the third annual F^3 Lake Half Marathon on Saturday. Naughton, 26, won in 1:18:12.85, and Czarnik, 23, led the women with a 1:28:38.4. Second on the men's side was Mike Comstock, 25, who ran a 1:19:04.10, and third was taken by Rasmus Porsgaard, 33, in 1:19:19.8. Runner-up female was Helen Nuttall, 30, who ran a 1:31:14.85, and third went to Britta Dahlberg, 27, in 1:31:42:00. Those are some very good times for this time of year in Chicago. A total of 805 runners finished the half-marathon. There also was a 5K.
