Thank you to everyone who participated, volunteered, spectated, and supported ULTIMATE HELEN! The event was a huge success. The weather was good. The crowd was buzzing. The BBQ was smoking. A special thanks goes out to CFVP member Stephanie Teague who created and organized "Ultimate Helen." I think we're all motivated to become better runners. We'll be putting together a photo album and video slideshow soon. Again, thank you all!
