Wednesday, April 11 - Preds!

Wednesday run is Route #4

This week we are doing the old switcheroo. We are going to run Route #4: Big Shelby Loop this week (4.31 miles), and come back to Route #3 next week.  Why?  Because run #3 takes us downtown, at just about the same time that the Predators' fans will be getting to the arena.  So to avoid mass chaos, (and having a hockey fan/runner brawl - we all know how that will turn out...) we're making the change. So check out the map - we're heading back into Shelby Park. As always we meet at 6 p.m. at 11th and Holly

Being Good Neighbors

Learn the route and volunteer.  Managing 200 people on a run each week is not rocket science, but it does require help.  And we need your help.  Even though East Nasty is a labor of love for us, Drew and I are tired of having to beg people to be run leaders.  We need you guys to step up!   There are people who have been running with us for years who always have an excuse not to lead - stop it. We need to take the burden off those folks who seem to lead the run every week.

And read the blog for cryin' out loud.

Thursday workouts

Thursday, 6 p.m.  Meet at 11th and Holly.  This week we will be heading back to the track for some quicker repeats.

Advanced/Intermediate/Novice: 5 x 1000 (@ 5k pace) 3/4 or 5 minute jog between each one.

Alternate workout (if you don't want to go to a track): 4-5 x 5 minutes fast / 5 minute jog

The Green Wagon & '5 Points 2nd Saturday'

Here is a message from The Green Wagon:

"For the next '5 Points 2nd Saturday' we'll be drinking the beer we brewed at our Craft Beer Week Homebrew Kickoff, we'll feature local artist, Hunter Mize (see his work on the current cover of The City Paper but imagine it with east neighborhoods!), and we'll be donating 10% of sales to East Nasty Running Club! Don't miss it!"
Sweet!  Environmentally friendly products, craft beer, art... - sounds like a great way to spend a Saturday.

1/2 Marathon Weekend

One of the best days of the year for East Nasty is the day of the Country Music Marathon.  April 28th this year. We run in the morning, meet up after the race to celebrate, and then get together that night for the real celebration.  Thanks to Andy & Heidi for offering to host the post-race party this year at 'Camp MossyWilson'.  It will be on Saturday night, April 28 from 5 till ???   We're going to need your help, so stay tuned for more details and what you can do to help.


If you didnt pick up your shirt last week you can pick it up after the run this Wednesday.

See you Wednesday! - Mark
