Dr. Funk Hoka

Joseph D. Funk, D.P.M.

Orlando Orthopaedic Center’s own Joseph D. Funk, D.P.M., was featured on Humans of Hoka, a long-running campaign and blog created by footwear brand HOKA ONE ONE to promote and inspire amateur runners worldwide (search the hashtag #HumansofHoka on any social network).

“Twenty-two years ago, I was standing at the finish line of a marathon working in the medical tent when I saw a runner coming across between the 3:50 and 4:10 mark,” says Dr. Funk. “By the end of the day, I set a goal to run the following year’s marathon.”

Doctor Funk shares his personal story about how he started running and the value his running community now contributes to his quality of life. His account is one among countless user-submitted posts from fans worldwide that highlight your average, everyday runner who have used the power running to overcome obstacles and use running as an outlet.
