ABOUT ME

I'm Becca and I'm a Lancashire lass living in London.I began running during my second year of University as a way to lose weight and get fit without the price tag associated with a gym, I haven't a clue how fast or how far I would run, I just enjoyed getting out of my student digs. However once I left University I left running behind. In May 2016 I returned to running as a way to deal with a particularly stressful time in my life. In April 2018 I ran my first marathon- the London Marathon.

MY BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENTS

I completed the London Classics all within 5 months. This included the London Marathon in April 2018, Ride London 100 mile cycle in July 2018 and Swim Serpentine 2 mile swim in September 2018. Prior to 2018 I had never run a marathon, I had never ridden a road bike and I had a fear open water. One major personal achievement in my life is battling with obesity. I've lost a third of my bodyweight and found a new lease of life along the way. I now enjoy the challenges running brings.

MY NEXT GOALS AND PROJECTS

After a shock PB of over 14 minutes at Dublin Marathon I'm now hungry to chase a sub 4 marathon and that is my 2019 goal. In addition I am really keen to move into triathlon, with the ultimate goal of completing an iron man for my 30th Birthday in two years time. My next marathon is Liverpool in May 2019, where I will also be speaking on stage at the Run Fit Expo with fellow FrontRunner Kelly.
