Running Spotlight: GP Pearlberg

We recently had a fascinating conversation with one of the most inspiring and charismatic personalities in the running world, GP Pearlberg. It’s impossible to describe this man in a few words but in trying, we’d say… runner, author, announcer, coach, MC & we could probably list about 50 more adjectives and still not give him proper justice. In short, he is a passionate ambassador to the running world.

His running story starts…
