Mariam Azeez is a sophomore on the Lincoln-Way East track and field team.
How long have you competed in track and field and how did you first get into it?
I’ve been doing it since sixth grade. I’ve always just natrually been kind of a fast runner, and I was like I might as well try it. I don’t mean to boost myself, but I wasn’t bad at it, so I stuck with it.
When you were growing up, did you just start to realize you were faster than the other kids?
