My name is Eric Pichardo, and I’m first a father to my beautiful 4 year old son Luc. Knowing that my time here is limited and I don’t want to miss a beat is what fuels me to be a better athlete, person, and father. My life is truly aimed at living every day with a smile and to know that I made the most of what this amazing world has to offer. Being an athlete is more that just PRs and pushing yourself, it’s about the journey and the people that you surround yourself with to make it meaningful and memorable. I’m an athlete who loves to get outside and explore new places while pushing myself everyday to be the best version of me. Hard work, happiness, and love is the example I want to set for my son. One day I hope he’ll find something he’s passionate about and chase his dreams.
