Vajin Armstrong - Ultramarathon Runner

www.facebook.com/Vajin-Armstrong

I have been running seriously for 15 years and I am still learning and improving. It has been a very long and challenging road which has taught me much about myself and has made me an infinitely better person. For me the practice of running is all about the journey of Self Transcendence, I am always seeking to challenge and go beyond what I have achieved before and what I think is possible for myself.

I run because I am a triathlete and have been for well over half of my life. I chose to give HOKA a try after almost everyone I train with transitioned over to them, and kept raving about how good they are. I am now a convert too and my favourite shoe is the MACH. I also coach for the Foot Traffic endurance coaching team and will be recommending my athletes to give HOKA a try.
