Re: Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Tamara's log

My mother always said " You can have a pity party, but don't be the last one to leave"... I've had lots of them, and was forced to snap out of them.

Re: The long awaited Crossfit shoe by Reebok?

Don't know about the heat and foot shaping idea, but I would think it makes sense. I used to be a professional ballet dancer, and we stuck our brand new point shoes in water, and put them on to shape...
