1. Name: Stacey Bulger

2. Age: 26

3. A brief background 
I'm a physiotherapist at Cabrini. I joined RunMonash while I was a student at Monash. I'm a senior member of the Victorian Softball team and have played for Victoria for over 10 years.

4. How long have you been a RunMonash member? 3.5 years

5. Favourite run session?
Saturday morning hills session is my all time favourite. It gives your running strength and develops your reflexes on the sharp downhill. I always run well after consistent hills training. 

6. Favourite place to run?
Ferny creek. It's so beautiful up there and I get to spend 90 mins with my best friends. Important to mention the all important coffee and breakie afterwards with TV

7. Favourite song/music to run to? (or sounds of nature)
I stopped listening to music when I started racing and now I would never go back....sounds of nature is all I need.  

8. Favourite food? Cereal

9. What motivates you to continue running?
I want to see how far my body can be pushed and when I think I'm at that limit how much further I can push it :) 
I want to succeed in running like I have in softball and make it to that elite level and see success there. 

10. What is your running goal for 2014?
To cement my spot in the Glenhuntly Division 1 team and to consistently run 70+Km per week.  

11. Any general comments about your involvement in RunMonash.
Running has changed my life in many ways, I have gained lifelong friends and skills I'll never lose. We are so lucky to have people like TV and Len who give their time for free to coach this group all for the love of this great sport. And how it's grown, I can remember coming along on Tuesday night and we would be lucky to crack 20 people.
Personally I would like to thanks TV for all his involvement in my running career thus far..."more to come" as he would say :) 

Happy Running Everyone
