I was recently contacted by the editor of the Marlo Thomas website. They were interested in featuring my story. MY story! WHAT?? They run a feature called "It Ain't Over" where they highlight women OVER the age of 40 who have overcome an obstacle, hurdle, challenge, etc., to live out a life long dream. You can read my story HERE.
In my case, my lifelong dream was to be a runner!! It took nearly 40 years to be able to reach that dream, BUT I DID IT!! And not only did I want to be a runner, I wanted to run in pink.That's why when I share race pictures, I generally wear a lot of pink! I've included a few here to show you exactly what I mean!
I am so proud of all I have been able to do, and I'm so excited to be able to continue to share my journey with the world. I'm living proof that you are NEVER too old, NEVER too far gone to turn your life around and live out your dreams. You just have to find your WHY. Once you find your why, then you can determine your HOW.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions, comments, etc. You can email me at Jennifer@Metamorfit.org or friend me on FACEBOOK.
Here is a before picture just to give you somewhat of an idea where I was starting from.
And then I discovered my WHY, and determined my HOW.
Do you like to run in a certain color? What color? Why?

I received the items from NuxUSA to review through my partnership with FitFluential, as always all thoughts and opinions are my own!
I live in workout gear. Even when I'm not working out, that's pretty much my outfit of choice. When I was contacted by NuxUSA and told that I could pick any top and bottom from their website, I'm not going to lie...I got a little giddy!! I went through their site very carefully and finally selected an outfit that was typically something that I wouldn't wear. I wanted to step outside my comfort zone a little bit!
It arrived beautifully wrapped and I was excited to open it, even though I knew what was inside!!
I opened it and set it out on my table! It was so pretty!
It took me a few days to get a chance to actually put it on, but when I did, I loved it!! The outfit held up wonderfully during my WOD which consisted of a ton of knees to elbows and burpees. While doing the WOD the pants held snuggly in place (maybe a bit too snug, I have some junk in the truck #crossfitproblems) and the top didn't ride up.
Overall, I loved this outfit and would recommend NuxUSA if you are looking for some cute quality CrossFit Apparel.
