I am also hoping to do an interview Lim Thow Wee on his upcoming run in Hong Kong. If time permits, this will take place.
An Interview With Ashley
Why did you pick Chicago Marathon in year 2014?
To go for a good time while experiencing a legendary course.
Were you happy with the race timing?
I felt blessed to still hit a personal best despite running on a nasty blister from 23km onwards. Coach and I knew my fitness back then was faster than 2h35m39s.
What made you choose the New Orleans Rock 'n' Roll Marathon 2015?
The Rock 'n' Roll series has a good reputation for organizing races well so I wanted to take advantage of that again, after my experience at the Virginia Beach Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon 2014. When Coach and I searched for Rock 'n' Roll races around this time of year that were not too far away from Sherman College of Chiropractic, New Orleans happened to be the best option.
What is your goal for this race?
A personal best of 2h 30m.
Any problem that you foresee in this race?
Crowd support will not be as massive at this race compared to many of my previous races, so I will have to draw more upon internal focus and motivation.
How is the weather going to be in New Orleans on 25th Jan, 2015?
Between 6 and 11 degrees Celsius on race morning.
