Student, staff, or friend of Monash Uni? Student
Occupation/Degree/ Program? PhD in Chemistry (solar hydrogen production)
Favourite food? I love cooking so anything creative.. (a Hungarian goulash or Thai green curry are top of the list)
All time favourite running trail, race or fun run? A run along the Croatian beach in the early morning and jumping into the sea after!  Plus last year’s Melbourne Marathon (half) – my most challenging but very rewarding run so far.
Any running shoe/clothing/gadget that you couldn’t live without? I’m not fussy about running gear (I’m a bigger fan of cotton shirts than fancy lycra tops), but  my pair of Sauconys are essential (when not running barefoot..)
What do you enjoy most about your involvement in the running squad? Motivation! (if TV can make it, I can make it!) + fun, making friends..
Would you describe yourself as a goal setter, a tech head, a socialiser, a keep fitter or a junkie? 80% keep fitter, 20% socialiser
Does TV really have ‘senior moments’ or is this just his cunning plan to get us to sprint for longer (yes, I’m talking about the 70 second ‘minutes’)? Come on…TV’s the best!:)
