Best 2k Songs: A Playlist for Erging

Best 2k Songs: A Playlist for Erging

We asked our followers what their go to 2k songs were, and the responses did not disappoint. From Metallica to the Cast of Glee, the genres are all over the place. Speaking from experience, it is so hard to pick a good song/playlist on 2k days. Some songs are too long, too short, or too repetitive. This playlist has a wide range of different genres, so hopefully it can strike some inspiration if you are at a loss for what to listen to! Tap on the link below to see the full playlist!

4 Essentials For Rowers

4 Essentials For Rowers

JL Racing sent me over a nice box of gear this year to try and give honest feedback on. I had previously had JL gear through their provision of the national team gear in Ireland in 2018 and also when I joined Team JL 2018 in my last year of university rowing. I was excited as I was still to this day wearing their JL Racing t-shirts day to day as I loved the quality and how well they washed and could be used over and over. They also sat on my shoulders and arms really nicely, which was a bonus for the ego. Looking good in clothes can never be a bad thing. I have compiled my must-haves for a rowing session and why.
