My name is Eric Jensen and I grew up in the small town of Helix in rural NE Oregon. While I enjoyed all sports in school, my favorite was track & field. After high school, I competed in cross country and track at Eastern Oregon University, while I majored in computer science.
I am currently the Head Cross Country Coach and Head Track & Field Coach at Stanfield Secondary School in Stanfield, Oregon.
When I was at EOU, I really fell in love with running. I still compete in an average or 15 races a year, not including marathons. In 2005, I joined a club called the Marathon Maniacs. The Maniacs created another club called the Half Fanatics where, you guessed it, specializes in half marathons. To date, I have run 113 marathons.
My love of running has also recently spread into cycling and multi-sports. I like to ride between 6-10 centuries every year.
I have also competed in several duathlons. Some day I would love to do an Ironman triathlon.
In 2009, Eastern Oregon Sports Training LLC was created to provide coaching and timing services, both of which I love doing.
