A local teacher and coach successfully ran and finished the Boston Marathon on April 17.


Kristen VanVranken, a teacher at Northside Elementary and the DeKalb Middle School Cross Country Coach finished with a time of 3:11, averaging a 7:18 pace per mile. She was 305th out of 12,000 women and 3,000th out of 26,000 total runners, finishing in the top 10 percent of the field.


Only having run one marathon before Boston, VanVranken qualified back in December of 2015, which put her in the running for this year’s 2017 Boston Marathon.
