THE RUNNER

Founder, Eric Senseman, is an ultrarunner, writer, philosopher, veggie, coffee enthusiast, and traveler.

Originally hailing from St. Louis, MO, Eric began his athletic pursuits in baseball, soccer, football, and racquetball rather than organized running. At the age of eighteen he finally pursued long-distance running for the first time after reading that “anyone can run a marathon.” In pursuit of the possible, he trained for three months and completed his first marathon in a time of 3:37:05; his marathon best has since improved by over 60 minutes to 2:36:19. In 2009-2010, he went on to represent the Horned Frogs of TCU in cross-country and track before receiving his B.A. in philosophy in December 2010.

Eric lacked competitive times at shorter distances and realized that his strengths manifested in longer-distance races, so he turned to MUT running in 2011 while living briefly in Boulder, CO. In the fall of 2011, Eric relocated to Madison, WI where he attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison and received his M.A. in philosophy in December 2013. In the fall of 2017, after two years living in Denver, CO, Eric relocated to Flagstaff, AZ to live and train with the Coconino Cowboys.
