The old addage, "third time's a charm," rung true for Dukes runner Jesse Armijo, who handily won the Chips n Salsa Half Marathon on his third attempt at the race. It was also Armijo's personal best on the course, winning in 1:08:20. Fellow Dukes, Kristopher Houghton and Chris Peverada, finished second and third, respectively, to round out the Dukes' 1-2-3 sweep. Also running well for the Dukes, was Patrick McClernon and J.D. _____. J.D. a UC Santa Barbara product, recently joined the Dukes and is steadily rounding back into shape. McClernon, a recent arrival from Florida, shaved forty seconds from his sea-level half marathon personal best, running 1:21:57. The Dukes extend their sincere appreciation to Steve and Paulina at Run Fit for their beautiful course and generous prize purse.
