Only four other people have accomplished such a goal – running the entire perimeter of the United States. I just happened to be in Ocean Shores, Washington to witness this amazing ending! Helene Neville not only cheered herself on daily to meet her mile goals, but rallied herself against something that she was told would take her life, cancer.
The first diagnosis of cancer didn’t keep Helene on the couch. Instead, she used her doctor’s words to “get her affairs in order” to dream bigger than she had ever dreamed. And so began her running journey.
Later this week, I will share my experience as I watched Helene cross the finish line and dip her toes into the Pacific Ocean. For now, read more about Helene Neville’s journey by visiting her website One on the Run and read about her amazing story written by Robin Leach this week, Helene Neville, About to Complete U.S. Perimeter Run.
