Wes Turner - DWRunning

DWRunning Tenure:

Joined in August 2015


Half Marathon: 1:10:55, Marathon: 2:27:45

Primary Focus:


Most Memorable Race:

When I first broke 2:30 and ran 2:29 at the Kiawah Island Marathon and won the entire race. It was my first time breaking 2:30 as well as winning a semi-major marathon.

Long-Term Running Goal:

Qualify for the Olympic Trials one day.

Motivation to Run:

It is so many things to me that are indescribable. It is my time to think, my time to focus and it is purely MINE. I use it as a stress reliever and to relax as well. The pure feeling of running is just liberating to me where everything else in my life just fades to the background and all there is, is the challenges of running and the enjoyment of the run.

Must-Read Book:

Gray's Anatomy because anatomy helps people truly understand the mechanics behind their body.

Reward for a Good Race:

To be honest, I have a major candy addiction - so probably candy.

Favorite Part of Being a DWRunner:

It feels personal. It doesn't feel mechanical and Dan really wants the best for the team in terms of running fast times and hooking them up with perks that most other running teams/groups don't get.
