Marathon man Justin Gillette will be tough to beat

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Think you can win the Kalamazoo Marathon? Then you will have to go up against this guy and he is not kidding around.

Justin Gillette won last year and he is the favorite again this year. He wins because he works at it every day, running at least 10-miles each day.

He runs 25-marathons a year, and the rest of the time, he is preparing, recovering, eating, breathing and doing what he has to do to keep on winning. And he wins to keep his sponsors happy because they pay the bills.

He says he is a journeyman runner. If he really had talent, he could run one or two of the big races a year and support himself that way, but because he is only modestly talented, he has to run and win the smaller ones every other weekend.

The Kalamazoo Marathon is on May 5th.
