Less Equals More, In Running and In Life

After the glorious hustle and bustle of Christmas prep and a wonderful Christmas day in South Florida, John and I are now in Wisconsin to ring in the New Year with his family.  In the quiet of our little condo here, I have been reflecting on this past year, and planning and setting my intentions for the new year.

Over the last several months I have been bemoaning our lack of storage space both here and in our condo in South Florida.  And I have come to the conclusion that what we need to do is not acquire more space but GET RID OF SOME OF THIS STUFF!  Get smaller, leaner, simpler.

It's what I like about running..   all you really need is a pair of shorts and a t-shirt (and a sports bra for the ladies) and a pair of shoes (or not).  (Well, here in the north country in the winter, you do need a bit more--tights and some warm shirts, but that's pretty easy to do.)  You can run most anywhere, most anytime, with others or alone, fast or slow, long or short, with music or not...    Running regularly, you get smaller and leaner, naturally.  What could be more simple? 

This video from Graham Hill on TED says it best:
