interviewed by a guy in a speedo

Steve sent me some interview questions.

Interview Questions:

1.) What's your best and your worst race experience? Explain.

my best experience is definitely crossing the finish line at ironman madison with my favorite training partner and greatest cheerleader Anastasia! my worst experience was druing the buffalo triathlon a few years ago. during the swim i got kicked in the chest really hard and it totally knocked the wind out of me and i swallowed a bunch of water. then i promptly threw up all over my bike. i finished but didnt feel well.

2.) What was the race that got you "hooked?" Explain.
definitely seeing the ironman on tv as a young teenager. i saw it and thought that looks awesomely hard! then i made it one of my many life goals. cross that one off the list!

3.) What brand of athletic gear are you most loyal to? Why?
arcteryx. i used to rock climb a lot and they made the best mountaineering wear. its super lightweight, incredibly rugged and the soft-shell jackets are waterproof and windproof. they also happen to work amazingly well for running in cold weather!

4.) If you had to pick a current game show to be on, which one would you pick? Why?

well as a kid i would have killed to be on double dare! but now i would say jeopardy. when i watch it i seem to know an awful lot of the answers but im sure its more difficult being up there.

5.) Which Simpson's character would you get along with the best? Why?

hmmmm tough choice. probably lisa. she loves learning and she is also vegetarian.

To play along:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by giving you five questions. (I get to pick the questions.)
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview others in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Lisa... interesting. I agree with Jeopardy, but I usually know very few answers.

IM on TV is hard to not get sucked in!!

Arcteryx? I've never heard of them!

Yeah, I could see you as Lisa!....

Jen Rife said...

Ooh, interview me!!

I would totally be Lisa too!

2.5 hrs on the trainer? Jeez! I'd change coaches! ;)

I wouldn't have minded the 2x1000 in the pool. I equal the pool to being in my Fortress of Solitude.

Good job on the w/o's! Keep it up!
