Martinez Motivated by Campers:

Brenda's role as a mentor propels her forward

Giving back is important to #TeamNB's Brenda Martinez. So important that in the height of her championship season, she still finds time to host a cross country camp for high school girls local to her area of Big Bear Lake, California. Following the 2015 U.S. Championships in June, she hosted her third annual camp, which she doubled in size from last year.

Below, Brenda talks about her role as a mentor and how the energy from the girls fuels her during tough moments in her training and races.
