Run #10. It might be raining, but it's going to be close to 60 degrees, so I'll take it! For you new runners, click on the map on the side panel to get acquainted with the route. Only 2 more runs until #12..."nasty" - get excited!
Remember to keep checking off your Lightning-100 64 mile club. Bring it with you on April 7.
By the way, for you folks that are still lost in East Nashville, just remember that we start and finish at 11th and Holly. We try to make sure no one gets left behind, but if you are running and feeling a little bit turned around, just remember: sooner or later you need to end up at that intersection. And...the streets are numbered consecutively, starting with 1st by the river, and ending with 20th by Shelby Park. Maybe that will help a little...
Finally, we are really close to patio time at 3 Crow. Start bringing a change of clothes and some cash!
Tom King (or as Andy Moss says "Don King") 1/2 Marathon. You have two choices:
1) Run in the 1/2 marathon or 5k wearing your East Nasty shirt. (Iron ons are okay if you don't have a shirt)
2) Be at the East Nasty/Fleet Feet water stop at 9:00 a.m. One main goal of East Nasty is to give back to our community. Helping at this water stop is a good way to give back to East Nashville and the running community at large. Besides it's a blast! The water stop is located on Davidson under the interstate. Pretty much at 5th and Davidson. See Drew tomorrow night for more details, or just show up Saturday at 9:00!
Our Sunday 1/2 marathon training runs are moving to the CMM course for the next 3 weeks. We will be starting/finishing in Centennial Park. This week is 9, 10 or 11 miles. We will run the first 8ish miles of the course, then cut over Blakemore, turn right on Natchez Trace (right by the Vanderbilt Track) and end back in Centennial. Advanced runners will then add 2 loops of Centennial to finish with a little over 11. We will start at 9 a.m.
Odds and Ends
As a coach I get all sorts of emails from companies...mostly propaganda. But this one was interesting, especially for you anti-corn syrup types.
