Marathon Fever: Spotlight on Eric Tilson

Years Running

I have been running long distance races of 10 or more miles since May 2017.

Most Anticipated Part of Running the NYC Marathon

The audience of friends, family, and colleagues who promised to come out and cheer me on.  I stopped running races for good after an Injury on my high school track team. Training for this race also brings me back to those days of racing.

Proudest Running Accomplishment

My proudest running accomplishment is my training for the marathon so far. My choice to push to complete the marathon this year was a difficult one.

How Business School Has Helped with Running

Being an MBA student has showed me that I can handle more than I thought possible and that I can manage the unexpected challenges that come with committing to a long term goal.  I bring this mindset to my marathon training every day.

Favorite Running Memory

Running 20 miles from the upper west side of manhattan to Coney Island and celebrating with Fred’s Team teammates.
