“Running has meant so much more than I ever thought it could. My early twenties were filled with heartache, regret, mistakes and lots of alcohol. My biggest challenge has been my own self-destruction, pride and propensity toward the drink. It was the meditation of running that brought me back to my center. I was on the internet and happened to see an ad for the upcoming Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon in San Antonio. I had always wanted to run a marathon, but I had no experience. Nevertheless, my hubris convinced me that it would be no problem, and I was more than capable of finishing the 26 miles. My time was nothing to write home about, but after my body healed, something else seemed to remain. It was as if there was a new voice in my head. Running has transformed my life in a way that I know longer need the crutch of a three-finger pour or the numbness of a 12 pack. It has shown me a path to self-acceptance and self-empowerment. It has taught me the pricelessness of hard work and the possibilities of human determination. It is the thing that continues to bring me back to who I am every time I stray away.” - HOKA fan Rocky Bronco from Fleet Feet San Antonio - The Rim, TX #humansofHOKA
