Eric Naglich’s start in running began in 2013 when he was coerced into running a half marathon by his girlfriend at the end of grad school. It was a fun experience that he thought would be a one-time thing. Then he found out that one of his professors beat him by approximately one minute, and that couldn’t stand.

A few months after the race, Eric moved to the DC area for a job and joined NOVA to get faster and make friends in a new town. Both worked out very well, and he now enjoys running more than he ever thought he would. He has completed more than 25 races since joining NOVA.
