About Stacey Stacey McConnell is a Physical Therapist for St. Elizabeth Healthcare. He is a graduate of The University of Kentucky where he earned his bachelor of health science in physical therapy. Stacey is a runner. The first marathon he ever ran was The Flying Pig in Cincinnati in 2001. Since then he has run that particular race a total of seven times. He has over 20 marathons under his belt including Boston; Minneapolis; Carmel, IN; Disney; Atlanta; Chicago; Columbus and Philadelphia. Stacey acknowledges that harder than the marathons is all the training. He is a big fan of the Hal Higdon Training Guide. With each run he learns something about himself or running. Lest you think this running thing comes easy for him, Stacey has gone through injury and surgery and been able to properly train around both and come back to running successfully. Stacey encourages other runners that he works with to continue to challenge themselves with this vigorous activity, compare their running only with their own running and be happy with how they perform. He appreciates how it allows him to eliminate a lot of stress, stay healthy, hopefully live longer and be a better employee, friend, brother, father and husband.
