About Me


2013 Paris Marathon

Cynthia Martinez: blogger, runner, world traveler

Running has been part apart of my life since I was ten, when my dad would bring me alongside him during his evening jogs. I always enjoyed entering myself in the local 5k, and that was about as far as I would ever run, until I had this crazy desire to conquer a marathon. I completed my first marathon in 2008 in the windy city of Chicago with a time of 3:49 minutes. I’m now a fanatic who loves lacing up my sneakers and hitting the pavement in Central Park.

Globetrotting is my second love!  I have been to 21 countries. I’ve yachted through the Mediterranean Sea, rode a bike down a volcano in Hawaii, hiked on the soil of the Greek Isles, and had the unique pleasure of experiencing what it’s like to have a Turkish bath in Istanbul.

I’m a Pure Michigan gal, born and bred, but became a Manhattan transplant in the fall of 2008, besides a short stint of living in Miami this past year. The concrete jungle is where I call home. I live in Midtown Manhattan just a stone’s throw from what I like to call my sanctuary, Central Park.




Please feel free to ask me questions about where I have been or where I have raced.

Where is your favorite race destination?

    You are an inspiration. I am lacking motivation at times and I feel discouraged because I cannot seem to be able to learn how to breathe properly. I started using the ASICS methodology last week. I am aiming to run a race in October. How can I conquer those pesky breathing issues? Thank you, any help will be greatly appreciated. A fellow Latina In Motion Sole sister.
