Alongside running, Masha enjoys a game of tennis and discovering new food places in London.
What's your favourite...
Post-run snack? Rice crackers with peanut butter as a little snack or a nice big brunch (preferably an all-you-can-eat one)!

Playlist to run to? A good mixed playlist on Spotify. Anything with a fun beat!
Why did you choose to run with Team UC? I recently joined the UC alumni community and thought this would be a fantastic opportunity to not only improve my running skills but also to meet some new and interesting people.
Do you have a personal best for the British 10K? Not yet!
What are you looking forward to after you cross the finish line? Eating.. and celebrating!
