Spinning Playlist – May 23, 2013

Happy Thursday everyone! We’re going to make it to the long Memorial Day weekend … just gotta get through one more day.

Here’s what we rode to in tonight’s Spinning class:

Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend, and try to remember what it’s really about (not just the unofficial start of summer) – those who have paid the ultimate price to ensure our country’s safety. Just a head’s up, too: my full time job hosts a golf tournament every year, benefitting Azalea Charities’ Aid for Wounded Warriors, and it’s next Thursday … meaning I will not be here to ride with you next week. I’m leaving you in Sarah’s capable hands, and I’ll look forward to seeing you the following Thursday (if not sooner).

    • Definitely – I’d rather an okay instructor with awesome music than an awesome instructor with bad music. I like to hope I’m awesome on both counts 😉

  1. Ahh thank you for reminding me (us) who memorial day is really honoring! I love and support our troops and feel so blessed to live in America where men and women have laid down their lives for our protection! Thank you for the reminder!

    GREAT playlist 🙂 love the mix of songs… just did a spin class where the guy could NOT seem to get our of the 80’s… that is fine for some of the really good/popular ones… but I would have loved a better mix!!

    • Absolutely – I have friends and co-workers who are both current and former military, so I never forget the true meaning of the day … though I love that it’s the start of summer, too 🙂
      It’s amazing how much of a difference a good playlist makes. If you enjoy the music, it tends to make the class move a little faster, and lessen the pain a little (maybe).
