In 2013, Tatjana created No Heels Just Sneakers to share her journey to create a healthy and happy life. She has run over 30 half marathons and marathons and is an active member of Team in Training’s marathon group. Since 2009, Tatjana has raised over $30,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. In 2014, Tatjana created a virtual race series through No Heels Just Sneakers to encourage others to create a healthier lifestyle for themselves by ditching the couch, eating healthy, and joining a running or walking challenge. All profits from these events Tatjana donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Tatjana lives in Greater Los Angeles and when not running with Team in Training, hiking with friends, traveling the world, she sits on her couch curled up with a good book and a cup of steaming coffee.
