Helen O'Connell


My name is Helen and I am currently the organizer/coach for the USA Fit Champions Group.  I have been with USA Fit Champions since 2018.  After running and training on my own for awhile realized I needed some encouragement and to be held accountable.  So I joined this group.  My first half marathon was back in 2012 at the Houston Aramco Half Marathon.  Since then I have done over 20+ half marathons and over 10+ marathons.  I enjoy running because it is fun and you get to meet other people who enjoy it like you do that you otherwise would not have gotten to meet- plus, it keeps you in shape.

Heather Hengesteg

Head Coach - Half Marathon Group

Heather decided to take on the personal challenge and desire to run her first half marathon in 2014.  She has run 4 half marathons since then. When not out running, she’s with her family chasing the kids around!  Heather looks forward to meeting you all and running along side you this season!
