Informal Interactions with Eric Watko

Can you share with our readers what your passion is that helps maintain the balance between your work and personal lives?

To maintain a good life and work balance, I enjoy running. I like to train and prepare for big running events, as it allows me to focus on specific goals. I participate in events throughout the year, including the Occoneechee Historic Speedway relay race, Spartan races and others. In 2019, I participated in the Tuna 200, a 200-mile relay race across NC, from Raleigh to Atlantic Beach. I am also a proud member of the Old Dudes Running Club (ODRC). Running is a big part of my life, and I’m thankful to have continued to do so during COVID-19.
