Meet Lindsey Helsen! Lindsey is a 27 year old who comes with sass, sarcasm, and kindness in her heart wherever she goes. She has always lived in the Muskegon area - growing up in Ravenna, but graduated from Fruitport High School in 2014. After high school Lindsday continued her education at MCC where she also played softball for two years. Lindsay currently works in Human Resources at a family owned Aerospace Manufacturing business in Muskegon. Before landing in HR, Lindsay worked in health care for a few years which really opened her eyes to the importance of maintaining a sustainable healthy and balanced lifestyle. Which translates to: she enjoys physical fitness, nutrient-dense foods, along with pizza and brews.
When Lindsay is not running or at work you can find her enjoying time at her family cottage (the Sugar Shack) in Fremont, snuggling with her cats (Jeff & Moxie), cozying up at home with a book, watching Schitt’s Creek (on repeat, of course), attending a yoga class at Rootdown, playing cribbage/cards or having an immense amount of fun with friends and family.
As a part of our Runner Spotlight, we also asked Lindsay to answer a few fun questions:
1. How long have you been running?
