KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Thirty-one-year-old Melissa Gillette from Goshen, Indiana was the first female across the finish line in the 2014 Kalamazoo Marathon. She came in with a time of just over three hours and nine minutes.
Gillette is the wife of 2012 and 2013 Kalamazoo Marathon winner Justin Gillette. He told WKZO that midway through the race he just was not feeling he could take first place and instead chose to keep pace with her for the last 15 miles of the race to offer moral support.
