What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

I love that you have Amy Adams' That's How You know. That and So Close are my two fave songs right now.

If and when the snow ever clears out...I will be pounding the pavement again.

I think I'm going to start pulling my playlists together...I usually have one for powerwalking and a seperate one for lifting and abs.

You, my friend, are an inspiration and motivator for me AGAIN.

Love you tons.

Bring your running A-game to CA and we will make a blogging event out of our race! DONE AND DONE!


That is awesome. Music is so motivating...I do a lot of spinning and the music makes the class.


When I used to run, I always had to crank my music up. Hearing myself breathe so hard completely discouraged me.


Bored with my running music and remembered you had posted some great playlists! Thanks!
