      Sorry it took so long to comment, I was on vacation and just returned. Your playlist is very inspirational! I am teaching mine today. I switched out ‘Stronger’ for ‘Edge of Glory’ in my playlist, so thanks for that idea! 🙂

    Oh – curious what your final playlist was and if you have class notes to share. I’ve taken almost a month away from most of my classes and I’d love to return with an Olympics playlist!

    BTW – how come you seem to have abandoned Spotify? Just curious. It seems like Julz Arney is really loving it, so I was considering trying it…

      Hi Lisa! I’m actually returning from vacation late tonight so I will try to post teaching notes Friday or Saturday. Hopefully it won’t be too late for your Olympic spin! I don’t really have a good Reason for not keeping up with Spotify other than it is an extra step and time consuming. I don’t think I really understand yet how to get the full benefit I it either. Check back soon for an update! 😉
