The Man Who Runs To Live

You may have heard of the famous professional marathon runner Justin Gillette. The 30-year-old man who makes his living running marathons has won 64 marathons out of his 126 completed. You might be wondering how can you make a living running marathons. I was lucky enough to have an opportunity to meet him and interview him.

Justin lives an average middle class life. He doesn’t make lots of money but he knows how to use it wisely. “It doesn’t matter how much you make,” said Justin,” it’s how much you spend.”

Justin also gets many sponsors because of all his success. He has running sponsors like Marathon Man, GU and other companies that give him money or products like energy GU and treadmills.

Also Justin plans ahead so that if he will get the money in time to pay bills, because the prize money can take from 4 to 6 months to get to his house.

It may not seem possible that you could make a living running marathons, but Justin Gillette can do it.
