Hey guys! Here’s a special interview by one of our Co-Anchors, Vicky, with an awesome Lifehouse fan named Sherri! She did a half marathon event and got to see Lifehouse afterwards!
Q: What did you do to prepare for the marathon?
A: I used a training schedule by a guy named Hal Higdon. He has some really good training programs.
Q: What was the biggest challenge you faced and overcame during this experience?
A: For me, the biggest challenge is always mental. My mind decides I need to give up long before my body does.
Q: Have you ever run a ½ or full marathon before?
A: I have run ½ marathons before
Q: What was the atmosphere like the day of the event?
A: It was crazy! I love the energy right before a race starts.
Q: Did you have any lucky charms with you that day?
A: I have a necklace that I always wear on big days. It was given to me by my best friend who passed away a couple of yrs ago.
Q: How long did it take for you to complete the race & what number did you come in?
A: I am not sure what place I came in. I wanted to complete it in under two hours, but it took me a little over two hours. L I was disappointed, but there will always be more opportunities to try again!
Q: Did you have the opportunity to talk to Lifehouse? If so, what was that experience like?
Anything you would like to share with the fans about that experience?
A: Yes, I was able to see them after the race. It is always great to see them, they are so friendly. I wish I would have thought to ask them to sign the T Shirt that you guys gave me.
Q: What was your favorite part of the race?
A: Seeing a 57 yr old blind man finish the race. Very emotional to say the least.
Q: Do you plan to continue training and running regularly now that the race is over?
A: Yes. It has been 3 yrs since my last half marathon…but Im baaaaack!
Q: When you and your hubby met the Lifehouse boys after the race, who in the room smelled the worst? The best?
A: Hmmm..for the worst it would be a toss up between me and hubby (probably me!) And I have no idea who smelled the best, because I couldn’t smell anything over my own stench! lol
Q: What were you more nervous about, the race or talking to Lifehouse afterwards?
A: Ummm…talking to LH of course! I have two goals in life…to finish a full marathon and to be able to talk to LH without nearly passing out. I think I am more likely to achieve the first goal than the second. haha
Q: Why did you only run a half marathon instead of a full one?
A: Well, I tried to run the half marathon twice, but my entry fee only covered running it once. Darn! :)
Q: How did you hair look after the race was over?
A: Hmmm…let’s just say I would have looked better with Ricky’s hair than my own at that point!! (puke)
