Meet the winners - Jenny!

Jenny is one of those smart foxy blondes that make up 78 percent of the female part of the Swedish population. The rest of us are smart foxy brunettes and redheads. I've never met Jenny, which is a little weird, considering that she works just a few hundred meters from where I live. She's a producer. And no, that's not yellow Evian she's drinking, it's cheap and sour white wine. 

Jenny's victory in this challenge was fast and definite. This is how Jenny runs:

How did you get involved with runwithe?
My very good friend Linda B√∂rjesson told me about runwithe when I told her I wanted to start running. I liked the idea with having my own personal trainers on the web cheering for me and challenging me.

(editors note: that's lindab for those of you who are now familiar with the other runners user names)

Have you always been a runner?
No! I used to hate to run! But one day (5 months ago) I heard about
Nike + iPod and I decided to try it as a challenge.

Why do you run?
Women running look so powerful and cool. I want to be that too. And
also loose some weight.

How often do you run?
I try to run at least 3 times a week.

When do you run?
I run mainly before work at the gym on the treadmill. I like to have it
done so I can do some yoga or fitness training after work.

Do you run alone or together with someone?
Always alone. Can´t run and talk so its meaningless to have someone
with me.

How far do you usually run?
Nowadays I run about 5 km. I remember when I thought 5 km was a

What kind of shoes do you run in?
When I started to run I bought a pair Saucony Omni. My feet and knees
love them and so do I!

Any other equipment you dream of?
An arm pouch for my iPod would be nice!

What music do you listen to when you run?
Often its music I wouldn´t listen to if I didn´t run. I need the beat.
Be my world - Milky is really good!

How do you beat the "I don't want to go running moods?"
I don´t run! I think my body tells me when its enough. But it´s easy
to get lazy so I need to listen carefully if it´s just laziness or a tired
body. If its not a tired body I go to the gym and just run.
thanks for your replies Jenny!

Congratulations, Jenny! I also remember thinking everything over 2km was a marathon (and that's not long ago), and now I can run 10 kms. Hurray!

Congrats Jenny! Great interview. Thanks for sharing. I'm kind of new-ish to running too (and as I was telling Emi, pretty slow) - so it's good to know I'm not the only newbie in this group. -Heidi

congrats Jenny!
I was kind of wishing you would let the last 500m stays there for a while for a chance to run half as much as everyone did! haha :)
