Hoka One One Bondi 7 Shoe Review

I’ve been waiting for the updated Hoka One One Bondi 7 for what feels like years. Most people that have run with me know of my love for the Hoka Bondi. Why? I like how cushioned it is, and it’s one of my favorite shoes for easy runs. Recently, it’s my go-to on the treadmill.

Make no mistake, it’s a lot of shoe. Some people find it’s too much shoe, but I like the cushion. You aren’t going to break any speed records but if you’re looking for a high cushioned and durable trainer, the Hoka Bondi 7 is great.

Throughout the years, I’ve tried several brands of collagen. Some are better than others. For the most part, I have genuinely found I’ve seen the benefits of collagen most noticeably in my hair, skin, and nails.

How Are You Doing? No Really.

How are you doing?

The phrase how are you doing often comes with a quick: I’m fine, thanks, how are you. There are very people we trust to go into detail when we are “not doing fine.”

How many people can you trust with a complete mind dump: I’m not doing great?

Or heck trust to say more than an “I’m fine thanks.”

To be transparent, I’ve been stewing on this post for a while. I’ve written bits and pieces of blog posts, but they haven’t come together. I can’t quite say this blog post is “much better.”

The post itself can be categorized into different parts: 

  1. It’s ok not to be doing ok.
  2. I’m not doing ok, but I’m working on it. me walking
