Karl Gruber has spent much of his adult life in on-air capacities in the Columbus radio scene as a disc jockey, copy writer, and production director. An avid runner, he grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and graduated from Ohio State with a degree in Communications. When he is not out running and coaching other runners, Karl enjoys freelance writing, hanging with his many friends, and living life like someone left the gate open!

"As I was blasting through yet another one of my morning 6 mile runs down one of the rugged dirt and gravel roads of rural Hocking County in southeastern Ohio, the thought occurred to me, ‘ordinary people can accomplish extraordinary things!’

 It came as no surprise to me that I should think this, as over the years of reading and studying, I had become a student of what I like to call Positive, Possibility, Power Thinking. That and the fact that I wasn’t necessarily an extraordinary runner, but I truly loved to run, especially long distances.
