Janet Martinez

Why did you choose Nevada?

I chose Nevada because I saw it as a great opportunity to improve as an athlete and as a person. I also didn't want to be too far away from my family; Reno isn't too far from L.A.

What has been a highlight of your career at Nevada?

 Definitely not the studying! My highlight I would have to say would be the traveling and seeing new things and the experience during competition, such as meeting Kara Goucher (professional runner sponsored by Nike).

What are your goals for this season?

My goals for this season are to get top 3 in WAC and qualifying for NCAA.

What meet are you most looking forward to this year?

  1. 3,000m and the 5,000m (WAC indoor)
  2. 5,000m Outdoor (@Mt Sac; close to home so my family can see me)
  3. 5,000m at Stanford
