Erik

Co-Host - EarzUp! | The Supreme Resort

You may have seen Erik in the chat during various episodes. He hails from sunny Colorado, agonizing over which coast he will travel to next. The choice bears a remarkable correlation to runDisney events. His enthusiasm for Disney is based on years of visits in his youth and teenage years, taking advantage of both concert band and show choir trips to Orlando. He swears he only became obsessive once he and his wife found runDisney events to be far superior to any other running event on the planet. Erik can be found at the Parks in those areas that allow him access to Disney’s latest and greatest food and drinks, eager to discuss their successes and near misses with anyone who has the misfortune to sit next to him.
