After quitting smoking in 2011, Helen started running in 2012 as an outlet for stress, with her eye on running the Colfax marathon in 2013. Since then, she has run 8 marathons, and qualified for Boston 3 times. Besides running, Helen has taken up triathlons and completed the Boulder Half Ironman in 2016.
Helen also enjoys volunteering at races, and is committed to helping others achieve their goals. A quote by Eleanor Roosevelt sums up Helen’s beliefs: “You must do the thing you think you cannot do”.
In addition to her passion for running and triathlon, Helen’s other loves include her four dogs, cat and husband.
