Are you a runner? Do you want to run faster?
ZQuick. The shoe that makes you unnaturally fast. Sounds great, doesn't it? I know I was intrigued and super excited to give them a go!
They arrived to me packed up in a nice reusable tote bag! I loved that I had no big bulky shoe box to contend with! I received the Punch Pink color which is just perfect for me because pink is my favorite color!!

I hobbled my way through this week's workouts. I hurt my foot at the Spartan Race last Saturday and that messed up my entire week. I ended up having to defer my Gasparilla Lime Cactus Challenge entry to 2015 and had to modify every single one of my CrossFit workouts!

In the beginning of my weight loss and fitness journey, I was wearing a size 32. I wore drab workout clothing because that's all I could find online.
I loved when I was finally able to... [More]
