Whit Wooten

Occupation: Optician

Why I became a Sweet Feet Member:  I became a sweet feet member because I enjoy using them as fuel for my longer distance runs as well as the many health benefits they offer. Also when my friends told me about this team, I knew I had to be a part of it. It just made sense.

Favorite Race: Outer Banks Marathon. It’s hard to beat the views along our barrier islands. The atmosphere at this race is great. The fall temperatures are amazing and the post- race party isn’t too bad here either.

What got me running?: I wouldn’t really consider myself a competitive runner. I only compete against myself.

A little about Me:  About 6 years ago I decided to set a goal to complete a half marathon. I started training with a couple of friends that were training for a full marathon. Well once the distance reached over my projected half marathon mileage, I told myself, why not continue on and before I knew it I was running longer distances and absolutely loving it. Since then, I have completed many marathons, half marathons, one 50K ultra marathon which I plan to run in a couple of months again, and have participated in the Tuna Run 200 relay race for the last few years. I met the love of my life, my teammate Mandy, whom I plan to marry because of this amazing sport. I plan to marry her and complete many races and runs together!
