Music Monday: #MotivationMonday Remix Edition

Happy Monday!  It’s official, I have two work weeks left before I do my first sprint triathlon.  I am nervous, excited, and having all the feels that one can have for not being very athletic to begin with and attempting a very athletic feet.

Along with running, I have been swimming and biking as well to prepare, because #Tri.  So, today’s #MotivationMonday playlist was inspired by a recent spin class I took at Lincoln Square Athletic Club, because I was feelin’ the vibes of stellar remixes that the instructor was playing.  So I thought, why not share some of my favorite workout remixes that are great for anyone’s ride whether you’re in a class or not.

Get out on that trail or keep turnin’ up on your own stationary bike to this pumpin’ list.  What do you jam out to on your rides?  Comment below!

Music Monday: BØRNS

I am super excited to see that a rising star like BØRNS is keeping it real and playing at the Double Door this weekend.

I’m literally addicted to his debut album, Dopamine.  I listened to “10,000 Emerald Pools” on repeat hundreds of times before the whole album was released.  It’s got a beautiful melody, that transcends you with a bit of a psychedelic vibe and is totally a modern love song.

Speaking of love, his hit single “Electric Love” that he performed on Jimmy Fallon is as Taylor Swift says “an instant classic.”

BØRNS debut album is beautifully produced with help from Emile Haynie (who’s worked with Lana Del Ray) and Jeff Bhasker (who’s worked with Kanye West).  BØRNS better known as Garret Born writes genuinely and reflects on love and life as someone with more maturity than twenty three.

As we transition from indian summer to fall, this album can go with you on a walk in the park, at the office or a cozy evening at home with a glass of wine.
