Highway To Well 2013
The Highway To Well "Back In Track" was run on an absolutely beautiful morning. We had a record turnout for the 1/2 marathon, which was run on a new course this year. We also had the pleasure of hosting the Pendleton High School cross country team for their time trial. A big shout-out goes to the XC parents who monitored the courses and manned the aid stations. Check out the results for overall and age group.

Lostine River Run - Better Than Ever!
A gorgeous day provided the backdrop for a record turnout at the Lostine River Run, with 163 participants. Runners and walkers came from all over, including Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Alaska, California, Nevada, Montana, South Carolina, and Massachusetts. I absolutely love this event and it is one of my favorite races to help out with and time. The scenery is second to none and the people that I work with on this event, the Rotary Club of Wallowa County, are also second to none. All the participants had a great time and I must say that I was truly moved when everyone gave our oldest competitor, Herbert Ovestrud of Enterprise and only 85 years young, not only one standing ovation when he finished but a second standing ovation when he received his award. Runners truly have amazing hearts and this is one Lostine River Run that I'll remember for awhile. Here are the results for both overall and for age groups.
EO River Run Results
The 2013 EO River Run was run on a beautiful day in Pendleton, though a bit on the hot side, especially for those 15K'ers. The gnats were out in force, especially at the finish line, much to the chagrine of this timer. Anyhow, overall results and age group results are now posted.

Cougar Fun Run 2013
Thanks everyone, for participating in this year's Cougar Fun Run. Even though it was a little brisk to start the day, it turned out to be a beautiful day. We had a new location this year as we moved the race from downtown to the school. This provided us with better parking, better facilities, and a quieter road to run on. We had a lot a good feedback on the new course along Reith Road. Each year we're looking to improve what we do and this year you continued to set record turnouts with 96 official finishers. The Echo athletic department is greatly appreciative of the support. Overall and age group results are posted.
Getting Ready for 2013
I'm in the process of building the 2013 schedule and making a few small tweaks to the website. Hopefully by the end of December, I will have everything up to date. So keep checking back.

Who Is Eric Jensen
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.
Starting in 1989, I've coached for several schools in NE Oregon - Helix, Stanfield, Echo, Pilot Rock, and again in Stanfield. After five successful seasons in Stanfield, I stepped down from that position to be able to spend more time with my daughters. I couldn't stop coaching though, and I most recently coached at Weston Middle School.
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. Since then, I've averaged 9 marathons a year and have currently have completed 97 marathons, on my way to my goal of 100. My most recent marathon was the Chicago Marathon in Chicago, Illinois on September 7th, 2013. My next marathon will be on December 7th in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The Maniacs created another club called the Half Fanatics where, you guessed it, specializes in half marathons. I'm now up to 88 after running the Painted Hills Half Marathon in Mitchell, OR on August 31st, 2013.
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 Boston Marathon. This is a race that I have kept putting off for years until this year, when I finally decided I was going to do it. Here are some pictures from my 2010 Boston experience and from my 2012 trip.
Eastern Oregon Sports Training LLC was formed to provide personalized coaching to runners, cyclists, duathletes, and triathletes of all ages and all abilities. Running, cycling, and multi-sports have always been a love of mine, and coaching allows me to spend even more time with those sports, sharing and teaching what I know.
Eastern Oregon Sports Training LLC was also formed to provide race management for local area races and events, and to create a fuller calendar of events in the local area for runners, cyclists, and multi-sport athletes to participate in.
