I "ran" into a friend this past summer. He happens to be a runner that won the Silver Medal in the 2012 Olympic 1500 meters. I told him that I had given up on running due to a prior injury. I was unable to run without feeling like I was falling apart. He recommended that I try a new style of running shoe called the Hoka One One.
I was skeptical at first due to its large size and overall goofy appearance. However, I soon found that it allowed me to return to my pre-injury training level. I love this shoe and can't express how thankful I am to have found it. It has given me the opportunity to run again!
