Fans of Hoka will like this update. The midsole in v9 is softer but still firm, providing comfort for daily easy runs.
My dream of finishing UTD 100 miler began only a few months after having my amputation, after being asked to second Jo Keppler. I witnessed something that absolutely scared me the most and never visioned myself completing a race as tough as this. It was then that I made the decision to make UTD 100 the ultimate goal of mine. (not knowing a would be there a year later in 2022)
The Hoka ROCKET X2 is an excellent shoe that limits fatigue, offers huge forward propulsion, support, and eliminates drooping in. It is fast, pretty, and deserves a place in your closet. With this shoe, you can Fly and have no limits.
“I never thought about my age. I knew I could do it.” — Marjorie Kagan, ran her first marathon at age 81 after a few months of training
“I’m just glad they didn’t say practically dead when the headlines ran with my age. It’s never been an age thing for me. I still feel strong. I’m going to keep running as long as I can.” — Molly Friel, qualified for Olympic Marathon Trials at age 50
The Speedgoat have been life changing for me, I used to struggle with blisters and losing toenails no matter what shoe or size I wore over all distances.

Like many of us, Adam Peterman was shaped by the adventures in his own backyard. From competing for his high school cross country team in Missoula, Montana to representing Team USA in Thailand, this Western States champion has learned to stay humble and enjoy the process.
For anyone starting to run with short distances, requiring a shoe with lower drop and ample cushioning, I highly recommend the HOKA Rincon 3.
