A Film by Danny Miller, Jake Parrish and Drew Castellaw
For Jim Pearson, running is a way of life. Pearson, 70, has run at least one mile every day since 1970, and has won numerous long distance running championships throughout his career. Even though his daily run is a part of a national record streak, he also uses it to be closer to his son, Hopper. After receiving a severe wrestling injury in high school, Hopper was prescribed pain medications and became addicted to them. This ultimately snowballed to a heroin addiction that lasted over three years. Now five years sober, Hopper runs daily with his father as part of his sobriety.
