Brenda Martinez is an American track and field athlete, who runs for New Balance., She specializes in middle distance races. She won a bronze medal in the 800 meters at the IAAF World Championships in Moscow, 2013. She also represented the USA at the 2012 IAAF World Indoor Championships in the 1500 meters. Brenda is an Olympian, competing in the 1500 at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
In this episode, we talk about growing up and when she realized she was a great runner, we also talk about how she met her husband, Carlos Handler, who is now one of her coaches, alongside Coach Joe Vigil. Brenda carved her own path to get her Professional Running career started and we discuss that process in this episode. Brenda also dishes about the kind of mileage she runs as well as future goals. I’m so excited to follow along her career.
