Hi I’m Becca, an almost 30 something with a passion running, cycling, swimming and triathlon. Originally from the north west, I am now enjoying life in London, whilst always dreaming of my next adventure.
Battling obesity throughout my teenage years left me lacking self-confidence, unmotivated and unhappy. However, fast forward seven years, a third of my body weight gone and a whole new passion for running, cycling, swimming. I am SO happy to have been bitten by the fitness bug. I now spend my time combining my love of fitness and the great outdoors. I have a PhD in Environmental Science and enjoying writing about the linkages between sustainability, running and sport.
I love a challenge and in the past few years I have completed 4 marathons, 2 Olympic distance triathlons, countless duathlons, 1 ultra marathon and over 100 parkruns. My biggest sporting achievement to date is completing the London Classics (London Marathon, Ride London 100mile cycle and Swim Serpentine two mile swim) in just five months. 2020 was the year I planned to attempt my first half ironman (70.3) however that dream is now postponed until 2021.
I am also a passionate advocate of womens’ fitness and leading a healthy and happy life style. My hope is that through This Bunny Runs I can encourage others to embrace fitness, whether that means attending a Zumba class, completing a parkrun, running a marathon or simply getting out there and going for a walk. My aim is to not only spread my love of running and fitness but also share my journey to a healthier and happier lifestyle.
In 2017 I joined the ASICS FrontRunner UK team, which you can read more about here. Later on that year I was voted the ASICS FrontRunner of the year for 2017.
With a little self belief, a sprinkle of sweat and a huge dose of DETERMINATION anything is possible.
