Time vs. Distance

[Based on a problem by Emily Moore. Reworded by Sam Rebelsky.]

Two students, Chris and Mik, are returning from Jimbo's to a film in the Harris center. Chris decides to walk half the way and run the other half. Mik decides to run for half the time and walk for the other half. (No, I have no idea how Mik figures out what "half the time" is.) Both Chris and Mik walk at the same speed and run at the same speed. Who finishes first?
