Our Team

Michelle Martinezmichelle

Growing up in San Clemente, California, Michelle spent most of her time at the beach or city pool swimming and bodysurfing. She didn't really catch the distance running bug till she was a young adult and competed for one season of cross country at Moorpark College. Long after graduating from UCSB, Michelle relived her youth and ran for one final cross country season at Ventura College for her good friend, Nancy Fredrickson. Now in her 50's, Michelle has hopes of regaining her fast twitch muscles and being competitive in a few local 5Ks, 10Ks or half marathons. In her free time, Michelle loves a good glass of wine, going out to dinner or watching movies with her kids and husband.

Originally 11242 1270798456557 7437048 nfrom Ohio, he moved across country after graduating with a degree in English Lit and Creative Writing.

Scott Cook

Scott's experience with distance running began with a track season his sophomore year of HS that led to him quitting football and running XC his junior year. Without running he claims he would not have considered attending college. He considers one of his biggest running accomplishments to be a walk-on on the small Division I school of IUPUI. His best event was always theScott 800m but the mile was his favorite. He's known at Inside Track as a running, shoe, and computer geek. When he's not at the store or studying towards becoming a software engineer he has delusions of a track comeback, enjoys cheering on his Midwest teams (Go Bears! Bulls!
