September 29, East Nasty joins the Gumpathon
This week's run... If you have been around East Nasty at all, you'll recognize our love of community. There are times when we sacrifice our time, our talent and our money for the betterment of the East Side. But all the stuff we do pales in comparison to the sacrifice that the men and women in the military make every day. Even if you never see gunfire, military life is not easy.
That is why this week, East Nasty is going to join the Gumpathon. This is a run across America (named after the fictional run made by Forrest Gump...) to raise money for injured servicemen, both British and American. You don't have to donate; we are just going to show our support, en masse, by running with the Gumpathoners through downtown Nashville. So even though this will not be a "normal" East Nasty run, we'll still run 3-4 miles, but more importantly, we will show our support for those who have been injured in the line of duty.
So here is the plan:
6:00 We will gather as normal.
6:15 We will run down to LP field (in corrals, but this week, slow to fast).
6:30 Meet and greet the runners
6:45 Run over the walking bridge to Cadillac Ranch.
Then it's up to you...you can make a u-turn and head back, or you can enjoy the party (music, drink specials etc..) down at Cadillac Ranch.
