Music to erg to, pt. 65

Tomorrow is our last day on the water which seems crazy because I’m pretty sure it was just August and we were getting back on the water to start the season. Time really flies when you’re having fun.

Fun fact: There are now officially 1000 SONGS on the Google Doc. :-)

Soooo … about that polar vortex. It was cold yesterday morning but 18+ hours of #rokerthon (yes, I’ve been watching…) has prepped me for even colder temps and SNOW later this morning and I am pumped. If you’re out in similar temps, make sure you’re wearing the appropriate clothes (aka smart layers) and utilizing the space suits if you happen to have some on hand. Check out these posts too for some tips on layering up as the temps start to fall (1, 2, 3).

PS don’t forget to check out the new recordings I posted yesterday. All of them are pretty good practice recordings, including one from inside the erg room. I’ve been getting lots of requests lately for this kind of audio so I hope this holds you over for a month until December’s post.

PPS today’s playlist is awesome so turn the speakers up and get some good steady state in. Sprint season is right around the corner!

I love the post-DST fall season, winter, the snow, the cold, etc. but man am I getting excited for this winter training trip. Part of my preparations for that are getting two weeks worth of posts lined up so I don’t have to spend our downtime working on blog stuff so if anyone has ideas, things they want to see, stuff you want me to cover, etc. please shoot me an email. I’m open to pretty much anything and am always happy to push back my own stuff to post what you guys want so any ideas you have, feel free to send them my way.

Music to erg to, pt. 62 – Happy Halloween!

I kinda love this year’s Halloween playlist. I’m not super into the holiday itself (I’m really only in it for the pumpkin-shaped Reese’s if I’m being totally honest…) but these songs put me in the mood even though they’re not your typical “Thriller”-esque Halloween type songs. CCR’s “I Put A Spell on You” is probably my favorite song in here, even though it’ll never top the Sanderson sisters’ version.

Have a great weekend and enjoy your Halloween candy because as of Saturday it’s full steam ahead towards Christmas. (Oh, and Thanksgiving. But mainly Christmas.) If you happen to dress up in fun costumes definitely tweet me a link, I’d love to see what you guys come up with!

The only song not in there (because it’s not on Spotify) is the first one, which is Panic! At the Disco’s cover of “This is Halloween” from “The Nightmare Before Christmas” but if you wanna listen to it you can check it out on YouTube here.

TGIF, guys. Good luck if you’re racing this weekend and if you’ll be in Princeton, I’ll see you there.

HOCR weekend – woo! Just an FYI, if you email me this weekend (or emailed me yesterday) about anything not related to HOCR there is absolutely no chance that you’ll get a reply before Tuesday. The next couple days are going to be in-credibly busy and I’m not planning on spending any time on my laptop, let alone reading emails.

Don’t forget this afternoon, coxswain tour at 3pm! All the details are HERE. Any questions, tweet me (@beantownkmd).

I’m still waiting to hear when my 4+ is going to be practicing next week so you’ve still got time to let me know if you want to come on a tour of the river with me on either Thursday or Friday. All you’ve gotta do is fill out this Google Doc and let me know what day works best for you and if you know what times (you think) you’ll be available. Once I hear back about when I’m practicing I’ll post something on here with final times, meeting places, etc. Feel free to share that Google Doc with friends, teammates, etc. who might be interested or send me an email sometime this weekend. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone!
