I'll Spin You Right Round

I recently decided to further pursue my passion for physical fitness by becoming a spin instructor. Spinning is such a fun exercise because it combines great music with hardcore sweating.

After teaching my first class last night, I was thrilled to hear from my students that they loved my playlist. So, for your personal enjoyment, I'm posting it here for you to borrow (or ridicule, based on your personal music preferences). :)

Let's Get It Started 3:37 Black Eyed Peas
I Like It (feat. Pitbull) 3:52 Enrique Iglesias
Temperature 3:37 Sean Paul
Everytime We Touch 3:41 David Guetta & Chris Willis
Stereo Love 3:12 Edward Maya & Vika Jigulina
Do It Well 3:08 Jennifer Lopez
Boom Boom Pow 4:11 Black Eyed Peas
Love Is Gone (Fred Rister & Joachim Garraud Radio Edit Remix) 3:21
DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love (feat. Pitbull) 3:42
Hang Me Up to Dry 3:39 Cold War Kids
Club Can't Handle Me (feat. David Guetta) 3:53
I Gotta Feeling 4:49 Black Eyed Peas
Escape 3:28 Enrique Iglesias
Breathe Me 4:35 Sia

Feel free to suggest some great tunes for my next class! I'm always looking for new, exciting jams. :)

This is why I run...

I started running as a freshman in college as a means to avoid the freshman 15. It's always important to earn your beer before you drink it.

With the addition of Shipyard Brew Pub in Winter Park, looks like I'll be logging even more miles on the pavement.

Orlando's Going Big Time
Shipyard Brewing and Big Wheel Provisions to Open New Location in Winter Park, Florida

WINTER PARK, FLORIDA (August 9, 2010) – Fred Forsley, president of Shipyard Brewing Company in Portland, Maine, and chef Tony Adams, owner of Big Wheel Provisions in Orlando, Florida, announce plans to open a Shipyard Brew Pub and Big Wheel Provisions marketplace this October.

Located at 200 West Fairbanks Avenue (the former site of Strollo’s Cucino Due), this joint venture will pair the award-winning craft beer of Shipyard Brewing Company with the locavore and artisan food created by Tony Adams of Big Wheel Provisions.

The Shipyard Brew Pub will feature a 28 gallon brewing system. Beer will be brewed on the premises under the direction of accomplished Orlando brewer Ron Raike. Raike will brew small batches of seasonal and unique beers based on his own creativity and ingredient availability. The pub, overseen by Adams, will feature a chef-driven menu created with local, seasonal ingredients.

The Big Wheel Provisions marketplace will feature a regularly revolving selection of deli items, local produce and eggs, artisanal cheeses, hard-to-find specialty food products, cookbooks, food-focused periodicals, and kitchen tools. Alfresco dining, cooking classes, catering, and local delivery service will also be offered.
