Eric Jensen, Owner

 

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.


I also competed in the 2010, 2012, and 2014 Boston Marathons. A knee  injury kept me from participating in the 2013 & 2015 editions.
 

In 2009, Eastern Oregon Sports Training LLC was created to provide coaching and timing services, both of which I love doing.
