Weekend Warrior: Janie Wiever ~ Runner, Mountain Climber, Hiker

Occupation: Stay-home mom


Family: Husband, John; 2 boys, John III and Jessie; chocolate lab puppy, Jezabelle.

In 2017, I completed the Andrew Jackson Half Marathon, the Valentines 10K, and ten 5Ks and five mountain climbing/hiking adventures.

My favorite fitness accomplishment was the LeBonheur Pumpkin Run 5K. After having my second Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) with bone graft and three months of recovery, I ran and timed in at 31:44.

I have always loved running. It’s not about competing with others; It’s about pushing myself. The feeling of it is so therapeutic, and it’s the same for hiking/ mountain climbing. Believe it or not, I’m afraid of heights, but the feeling of reaching the top is so rewarding. The view is amazing as well. The feeling of pushing myself physically and mentally is so rewarding. It’s not about medals or placing to me; It’s about never giving up and pushing myself pass a comfortable limit.

My husband and boys are my fitness motivation. I love that we can all be active together. Being the only female Wieber in the household, I have to keep up with the men. They keep me on my toes.

My Bucket list is to climb/hike a glacier.

I love watching football—especially the Dallas Cowboys. My favorite team and my favorite player is Jason Witten. I was born and raised in Dallas so they will always be my team.
