Kilann Tanape of Nanwalek ran this summer’s Mayor’s Midnight Sun Marathon in Anchorage. Her first full marathon, Kilann completed the 26.6 miles in 6 hours and 20 minutes.

In March of 2012 Kilann started working out with a home DVD program. She enjoyed it and stuck with it. She soon started training for the Mayor’s Marathon after a friend asker her to run it. That summer she ran the half marathon and then a 5K race for Breast Cancer in Homer.

Kilann has not looked back since. She continues to challenge herself with both cardio and strength training. She pays attention to her diet, eating a healthy breakfast and small meals throughout the day.

KiIann started working for Head Start in Nanwalek in 1999. She has been a teacher for the program since August 2008.
