Sara Turner - DWRunning

DWRunning Tenure:

Joined in December 2015


Half Marathon: 1:37:33, Marathon: 3:26

Primary Focus:

I love all distances but primarily focus on marathons.

Proudest PR:

I am most proud of my 3:29 (my first Boston Qualifying time) in the Kiawah Island Marathon in December 2014. My previous marathon PR was a 4:38, and when I made the decision to go for a BQ most people thought I was crazy. I worked hard for 22 weeks and that was the proudest I have ever felt crossing the finish line because I knew I had truly earned it.

Favorite Part of Running:

That it is so personal. No one else can do it for me, it's my time and I am the only one in control of my success.


My husband inspires me. I've been with him for over 10 years and during that time I've seen him go through and completed Medical School and his residency all while keeping up with a demanding running schedule and working towards his dreams of the Olympic Trials.

Reward for a Good Race:

Food. Lots of it.
