He finishes almost every run with a mean Steak-Umm sandwich

My friend and former teammate when I ran with the Pittsburgh Pharaoh Hounds, Eric Laughlin, will be running in the world masters marathon championships in a few weeks. He has not only come back after years away from the sport, he has exceeded the standards he set as an undergrad at Slippery Rock. He's now the coach at West Liberty State in Wheeling. If that wasn't cool enough, he has a sponsor for the race- Steak-Umm Meats.
Steak-Umm Meats is proud to support Eric Laughlin in his upcoming marathon race in the World's Masters Athletics Championship in Sacramento, CA on July 17th. He will be wearing the Steak Umm logo on his race singlet during the World's Masters Marathon.

Eric is 41 years old and lives in Ohio. He is the cross country and track and field coach at West Liberty University in Ohio. He competes in races at the masters level and recently won the Tuscon, AZ Marathon in 2010. He also won the Master's Division in the Pittsburgh, PA marathon last month.

Eric is a big fan of Steak Umms and this is where is gets most of his protein to keep running at this high level. Eric tells us he finishes almost every run with a mean Steak-Umm sandwich.

Check back closer to July 17th and we will give you information on this televised event. GO ERIC!
