This spider was very fast and appeared to be actively hunting when found.

This is not a Spider but a True Bug with six legs and sucking mouthparts. There is always a danger with common names when a location is given, especially if the range occurs more widely than the name indicates. This is a Florida Predatory Stink Bug nymph, Euthyrhynchus floridanus, and though the name might indicate it is only found in Florida, its actual range, according to BugGuide, is from Pennsylvania to Brazil.
