I doubt I will ever overcome that challenge, but I used running as both my therapy and my support. The running community became a family to my wife and I, and they helped us continue our son’s legacy of fitness and giving. We started a successful race in memory of our son, ‘Peyton’s Wild and Wacky Ultra.’ The race sold out months before the actual date, and it was a huge success in bringing runners of all ages to the trail as well as continuing our son’s legacy of giving back to the community he loved. Running is my meditation. It is how I focus on life and those people important to me. It is my chance to make each day an adventure. It is my connection with my son I lost, Peyton, and my son I am raising, Miles.” – HOKA fan Noah Moore
