Jessica Wallen - DWRunning

DWRunning Tenure:

Joined in August 2015

PRs:

Marathon: 3:03:14

Primary Focus:

Marathon, but hope to get fast at 13.1 :)

Favorite Race:

I love the Chicago Marathon because of the amazing crowd support, the route that allows me to see my wonderful husband and family 4 or 5 times, the tour of so many different Chicago neighborhoods and because it is so close to home I can be on my couch in time for Bears kickoff.

Reward for a Good Race:

Time with my friends and family is my favorite place to be after a good race. I like to toast a glass of champagne with my husband and eat my favorite vegan food and cake :)

Running Start:

I was so caught up in graduate studies and being a graduate assistant that I decided to start training for a half marathon to get outside and have another focus. I completed it and decided I wanted to go for the marathon and I have run Chicago every year since!

"When not running, I can be found...":

At Whole Foods or the UA Brand House.

Favorite Part of Being a DWRunner:

Dan and the entire team! Love this group!

Favorite UA Product:

It depends on what I am doing. To run I am pretty basic - love the Speedform socks, mid printed sports bra, 3 inch compression shorts, rock & roll!
