I recently returned from two weeks in Dubrovnik, Croatia, visiting with my grandfather and extended family. Dubrovnik is a medieval walled city, built on the side of a mountain range, overlooking the Adriatic Sea. Although it is a summer-goers paradise, it is not the easiest place for a continuous run, as it is filled with hills and stairs. The majority of my runs in Dubrovnik were on a 1-mile paved walking path that hugged the coastline, overlooking the old city walls. There were two options for running on this road: run up hill for a mile and then run down hill for a mile. Although the steep terrain was at times challenging, the views were breathtaking, especially at sunrise and sunset.
There are few things I love as much as golden sunlight. Among them are a well-matched pair of running shoes. I was recently welcomed to HOKA ONE ONE as a brand ambassador. I do not say this lightly, but my HOKA shoes have changed my running and in turn, my life. I am honored to represent their brand and introduce others to their innovative, yet functional technology that makes me feel as if I am running on a cloud. I believe that one of the main reasons I am able to run high volume without being injured is because of my HOKA Cliftons and Huakas. Who doesn’t want to be able to run more miles, recover faster, and stay uninjured?
