Growing up in Sacramento and now living in the Bay Area, Eric has spent a lot of his free time with trips up to Lake Tahoe. From being an athlete through college, it was in 2005 when he found his passion for triathlons and endurance racing. Eric is proud to be a 3x time Ironman Triathlon finisher (IM Coeur d’Alene, IM Penticton BC, and IM Arizona), and has competed in many other endurance events including the Devil Mountain Double Century bike ride. Outside of racing, he is the run ambassador for lululemon Walnut Creek, CA where he coaches a weekly run group. Eric loves Tahoe, and has been leading hikes for Wanderlust Squaw Valley for the past 3 years. He has a passion for fitness and a passion for community. And, you can definitely see this by the way he leads his hikes.
