Eric rediscovered running as a way to chill out and destress while working as a high school English teacher. When he's not chasing his two sons around, you can find him writing, drawing, and listening to podcasts. ---- # OF YEARS WITH RA: 1.5 ---- FAVORITE BEER: Currently Boss Flamingo from Neighborhood Beer Co. ---- WEIRDEST THING ABOUT YOUR STORE: The floor! It was built on a bet using wood from a ship's quarter deck.
