Name: Skyler (The Matador) Martinez
Hometown: Salt Lake City, Utah
Family: The family is supportive of my running habits, and they show up for some of the races. When I tell my parents about my long runs/rides, their favorite response is always “you could have just asked to borrow my car!”
Education: Went to a glorious little place called Judge High School (2008). Couple years at Utah State, couple years at the University of Utah, and still a couple years to go. Deciding where you want to end up in life is an ever-evolving event, and I’m doing my best to get it right. \
