“Hoka One One! No better show for the bigger runner!”

Bondi 4 Hoka One One

The Big Guy’s Shoe!

With all the maximalist shoe craze in the media over this past year, I decided to cave to the hype and try a pair of the Bondi 4 by  Hoka One One.  To be honest, I was a skeptic.  Many have praised the shoe for preventing injury while engaged in marathon training.

I have to say, that I was more than pleasantly surprised!  This is the, “big guy’s” running show.  The first time you put on a pair of these shoes, you feel literally two inches higher.  That was a cause for concern in the beginning – Would I have problems on uneven terrain with ankle role?  That would be devastating!

Planning Ahead

After successfully completing the BMO Vancouver Half Marathon this past May, I have committed to, and am gearing up for, the full marathon event next year.  The maximalist concept just might be the trick, especially as I build my long distance running base.
