Salazar, Castner Win Fitness for America Half
The heat was up and the humidity high on Saturday, but some very good running still took place at the America for Fitness Half Marathon in Hoffmann Estates. Mario Salazar, 32, was the overall winner in 1:14:57.6, and masters ace Kim Castner, 48, of Naperville, was the women's overall champ in 1:27:12.2. Runner-up male was Josh May, 30, in 1:16:22.5, and third place was earned by Andy Remley, 31, in 1:19:09.4. Second-place woman was Ashley Molidor, 28, in 1:29:12.4, and third-place woman was Lori Buratto, 41, in 1:29:20.2. Some of the newer timing companies are not supplying hometowns. I plug them in when I know them or find them. Congrats to the 536 finishers in this race.
