Here is a Q&A with Jolene:

 

What other races have you run?

  •  I am a walker not a runner. I try to walk at least 4 miles a day. When getting ready for a half marathon I will increase the miles.
     I just retired this summer after working for the state of Mississippi for 32 years.
     I have completed 5 marathons (Anchorage, San Diego Rock n Roll, Honolulu, Bermuda, and Dublin, Ireland), and over 20 half marathons including St Louis Rock n Roll, Mississippi Blues (6 times), New Orleans Mardi Gras (twice) along with numerous local half marathons.

 

Why did you select Oslo as the event of choice? 

 I selected Oslo since I have not been there and it is one of the places I have wanted to go.

 

Who are you bringing with you on the trip?

 My sister will be coming with me. We have done several half marathons together.

 

Have you been to Europe before? Do you have a passport?

 I have been to Europe several times and look forward to going again. I do have a passport.

 

- Do you expect to extend your stay?

 I would like to extend my stay another 2 days depending on the cost.

 

- What do you like best about Rock n Roll?

 I enjoy the bands along the race route and the concerts after the race.
