Here is some advice from she has for anyone interested in track and Field. Buenrostro says, “My advice for future runners or people starting running is to take it slow and work your way up because even I struggled in the beginning when running a mile and now I’m able to run 8 miles without stopping. The things you can do are unlimited and one of the most important things people forget is that pain is inevitable but it’s okay. Running is all mental so just continue to push yourself past your limits. You might surprise yourself.”
