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

One major personal achievement in my life is battling with obesity. Over the last 7 years 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.
I completed the London Marathon in April 2018 and Ride London 100 mile cycle in July 2018.

MY NEXT GOALS AND PROJECTS

I'm now training for swim serpentine as I attempt to complete the London Classics in one year. I have also recently started combining my passion for running with my other hobbies- swimming and cycling and I hope to attempt a sprint triathlon in 2019.
