Well, my dear sweet husband Jim at 50 After 40 interviewed me for his blog, so I thought it was only fair to interview him for mine too.

Michael: Jim, you are obviously an awesome runner, why not take that to the next level and get into triathlons?
Jim at 50after40: Well, I really only like doing things I’m good at and I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be any good at swimming or biking. Also, I really don’t like being “chicked” and my wife is the best triathlete on the planet. I know she would kick my butt in a race and I just couldn’t live with that.
Michael: Your blog slogan is “Be Great Today”. If you always have that on your mind, you must be the world’s most awesome husband – you know helping your wife out around the house and just trying to be great all the time.
Jim at 50after40: Well, I’ve found that if I try to use Be Great Today in my personal life that I use it up to fast. I have to save it for race day so it really has some mojo. Plus, if I’m always doing awesome things everyone will expect it all the time and I won’t get a much needed pat on the back. For instance, if I leave my stuff all over the kitchen table most of the time, and then I clean it up – I get a huge Thank You – do you think I would get a thank you if I kept it cleaned up all the time? I think not.
Michael: If you could change one thing about your wife Michael, what would it be?
Jim at 50after40: Change something? Why would I do that? Michael is perfect in every way. It’s so cool how she always has an opinion on things and knows the exact right way to do things. I mean she is constantly giving me ideas on self improvement and telling me the best way to do things. It’s really great!
Michael: I heard that Michael saved your life once. Tell us about that.
Jim at 50after40: Well, we were on a weekend vacation in Branson and BAM - this huge fish came out of nowhere. I was lucky Michael was there or I probably wouldn’t be here today. She’s always doing awesome things like that for me.

Michael: Speaking of vacations, tell us what your ideal dream vacation would be like.
Jim at 50after40: Well if Michael had her way we would go on baseball vacations all the time – or better yet never leave the house. Personally though, I would love to take Michael on a lavish beach vacation and just sit back, relax, and bask in the sun for at least two weeks – that would be the best. Michael would tell you that it’s me that doesn’t really like vacations, but that can’t be right – who doesn’t like vacations?
|Oh the places we could go.|
Michael: If your house was on fire and you could only save one thing (including your wife), what would it be?
Jim at 50after40: My baseball collection of course. Come on, Michael is a big girl – she could save herself and of course Jack (she wouldn’t leave without Jack).
Thanks for sharing with us today Jim! You are truly a superstar husband and athlete. Be Great Today!
