Eric and Jayden

What inspired you to run for the NPF? 

I am running in honor of my 14 year old son Jaden #teamJaden, who is in the process of regaining his life back after battling Chronic Pancreatitis for several long years. On
February 4, 2019, he had the TPIAT surgery and is doing great. No child should have to suffer from this terrible disease. As a parent, it is a horrible thing to watch. I’m
hopeful that in the future, modern medicine will be advanced enough that the suffering will be minimal for other children.

Three words that would describe you? Stressed, Funny, Old

If you could eliminate one thing from daily routine, what would it be and why?  Work! Life is too short to be working as much as I do.

Your go-to meal before a race? Pizza

Favorite place to run? Or your happy place? The Outerbanks of North Carolina

Favorite race and why? Backyard Classic 8 hour Endurance Race in Kentucky (2018). Ran this race with some running friends and had a blast.

What’s your favorite book? I don’t read. Reading hurts my head!

Would you rather live without the internet or live without AC and heating? Internet #techtard

If you could talk in any accent (other than your own), which accent would it be? Dave Hughes English accent. Ha, Ha

What’s one thing about you that surprises people? For 26 years, I’ve been a sales rep for the worlds largest domestic cigar company ( Swisher International ).

Would you rather have a horrible short-term memory or a horrible long-term memory? What was the question?
