9/30 - East Nasty Churches

One of the 13 churches on this run! Route

East Nashville is one of the oldest communities in Nashville.  Many of the buildings date back to the late 1800's early 1900's, and some of the most beautiful architecture is highlighted in the churches.   To enjoy these  buildings, this week we have a figure 8 loop that will feature many of these old churches. (we'll pass about 13 churches in all!)  Run #11.

So during the run, take a moment to observe the amazing neighborhoods that we get to run through every week - East Nashville is truly a unique community.  Below are some links to some of the churches that we will pass on Wednesday.

East End Methodist

Tulip Street Methodist

Edgefield Baptist

(Also - this week is a great week to invite novice runners.   New runners are always welcome, but since this run is a figure 8, beginners could stop after running/walking 2 miles.)

Race for the Cure

I probably don't need to introduce Race for the Cure, or convince you that it is a good organization.   So let me just tell you that East Nasty Jill Mongene is in charge of the race, and will be asking us (men) to volunteer and you (women) to participate.  Pencil that race in for the morning of October 10th.

The Return of the Sunday Long Run
