Hoka speed instinct review

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on August 23, 2016 by theroadandthedamned

So I have been waiting weeks to get my hands on these new Hoka trail shoes. I took em  out for a quick trail run this morning. I have to say they are some of the most comfortable Hoka’s I’ve ever worn. The 3mm drop is perfect for me, the shoe is responsive and cushioned at the same time. The lugs aren’t huge but they are more than adequate. The shoe is pretty light and feels fast on your feet. It does seem to soak up every bit of water it touches… But hey that’s life in Florida. All in all a solid shoe I currently would give it an 8 out of 10.

Trail running is my love. It brings challenges and focus that are very different from road running. I did a swampstomp Sunday. Here is a pick of me running through “interesting” conditions.13770436_10210240392915107_1802637195436950725_n

I will be quitting my job as a trainer. The company I worked for (Around the clock fitness) has ripped me off of literally thousands of dollars. My complaints have fallen on deaf ears. I hate to leave my clients, they work so hard towards their goals but I cannot work at a place that puts zero focus on honesty. I learned a lot there in a small time about what I don;t want to be like and how not to treat people. and with that said  I’m out.

Why are people so disingenuous and full of hate? People are so judgmental about hot button issues such as transgender bathroom usage and whether or not people should or shouldn’t identify as(fill in the blank). Why be so hateful about someone else]s life? I don’t sit back on a moral high horse and judge people…not really my thing but I see SO much intolerance it makes me sick.People I know who claim not to be racist or homophobic will let remarks come out and defend it with “we Christian’s are attacked constantly”. By whom? I am not a religious person. I’m a straight white male pushing forty married with a daughter from an ex wife. Some will say I live a life of “privilege” and while white privilege is a very real issue. I certainly wasn’t born nor am I now wealthy. Why be so bitter about how Caitlyn Jenner chooses to live her life?It’s hers let her be happy. I’m bombarded daily on FB by people I used to know who used to be very different in their thought processes. It makes me sad to see other humans slandered because they dob’t fit your definition of “normal”. I want my daughter to have the best life possible. My wish is that whomever she chooses to love treats her well.
