MileSplit - When & how did you get started in track & field
Robin - I started running track when I was 8 years old. My dad, Carl Cunningham use to coach Optimus football and I use to run with the boys when they were running for punishment. And his friend suggested I should run track, so my mom Robbie Cunningham took me to Moore Park and I began running for Miami Northwest Express Track Club and everything else is history.
