Running Together - Embracing age and opportunity with Helena Dinnissen( 0:29:42)

Not all of us get a second chance at both finding out and doing what we love.

Getting older usually means getting slower and running longer distances. Helena Dinnissen shatters that norm. She personifies the search for answers and the drive for self improvement through athletics, less for herself, but rather so she can be a better mum, partner, friend, and worker.
