Becca Burns

I’m Becca and I’m a London Based runner. I started running in May 2016 to deal with stress and anxiety. I find running makes me happy, lifts my spirits and gives me a chance to relax. I ran my first half marathon in June 2017 and became hooked on the distance- half marathon is my favourite distance to run. 10 months later i went on to run my first marathon, the London Marathon which is one of my proudest achievements. I love to run and travel, I’ve never been to Finland and i am so excited to run Helsinki!

5 favourite things about running:
