Coach Dustin Pearce
Dustin begins his nineteenth year of coaching in 2019. Most of those years were spent coaching high school cross country and track athletes while working as a high school science teacher. For the last few years Dustin has been a coach for the spring training teams with Team Run Hub. As an athlete, Dustin ran competitively in high school and then for Missouri State University where he earned All Conference honors. Dustin is on the comeback trail after a couple of surgeries in 2018, but hoping to get healthy again and make an attempt to break 1:20 as a masters runner for a half marathon in the next year or two. As a coach, there is nothing Dustin loves more than to see his athletes grow and accomplish goals that they might not have thought possible.
