Spinning Playlist – January 3, 2013

Happy New Year everybody! Hope you had a wonderful holiday season and your 2013 is off to a great start. My Tigers won the Chick-fil-a Bowl about 45 minutes before the clock struck midnight on Monday (and I spent the evening in good – and yes, admittedly … kinda cute – company…) so it’s been a good one so far!

But back onto the saddle we go! Here’s our first playlist of 2013:

There it is – first one of the year in the books! Remember, the crowds are only going to get worse in the next two weeks or so, so get there early if you want to get a bike. Alexandria folks, I almost always have the studio open by 5:30 for our 5:45 p.m. class – I’ve been completely full almost every week since the middle of October, so make sure you don’t get left out! Have a great weekend and enjoy these last couple college football bowl games coming your way … who will you be cheering for next Monday, Notre Dame or Alabama?
