No Boundaries, Beginner's 5k (Couch to 5k)

Kristin Hatcher aka The Stellar Athlete

Coach Kristin Hatcher running happy and strong!

I’ve played soccer most of my life and always viewed running as a means to an end (i.e. warm up, as part of the game, etc.) and not something to do for fun. In 2013 a friend suggested that we run the Tacoma City Turkey Trot and I thought…“Why not?” While I was unable to run the entire time, I had so much fun that the next day I signed up for the Santa Runs Tacoma 5K. When 2014 started I set a New Year’s resolution to run a 5K a month with the hopes of being able to run the entire race. For the year I ended up running 16 5Ks, a 3.5 mile obstacle mud run, 2 10Ks, and my first half marathon! Needless to say I’m addicted and can’t wait to share my love of running with others!

Kriss Schatza, Half Marathon, "The miracle isn't that I finished, it's that I had the courage to start"


Zach Zimmerman, Half Marathon, "I used to think that I would never run a half marathon.  Well that eventually happened.  Then I said I would never run a marathon.  Well eventually that happened.  My advice to you is, "enjoy the journey."  It will hurt at times, and be hard.  But it is an awesome experience."
