Fresh off the heels of his second New York City Marathon, Eric Lugo has become an inspiration to many who have known him since he started a transformative journey two years ago. His interest in running was kickstarted when he and several friends challenged one another to a tough mudder competition. That competition led to a dozen other races over the last two years including three marathons, four half marathons, and multiple obstacle courses. In addition to helping Eric feel accomplished, blessed, happy, and energetic, running has transformed Eric through weight loss that many of us at The Caledonia have noticed and have been inspired by. Eric took some time to speak with me about his love for running, what his favorite routes are, and the surprising ways he has inspired others.
