Wednesday May 30

Couch to 5k

We are quickly approaching 100 participants in our couch to 5k.  This is incredibly exciting, but we have noticed one issue with our on line sign up: signing up multiple family members.   Each participant must have a unique email address to sign up.  This makes it impossible to sign up more than one person per email address.  We're working to correct this issue, but right now, if you need to sign up multiple people on one email address, go ahead and sign up one person, and we'll take care of the others at the meeting on June 7th.  Click here for more information.

Shoe Drive, June 6th!

June 6th is our second shoe drive of 2012, so we need you to bring any and all old pairs of shoes to the Wednesday night run.  (If you would be willing to clean them up first, that would be extremely helpful.) We’ll take any pairs of shoes that have life left in them, and pass them along to a runner in need!

Morning Running

From now on, Amanda Tungett will be leading Wednesday morning versions of the East Nasty run starting at 5:50 a.m.  They will start at the normal place and will run the same course as our afternoon group.   This is a great way to get out of the heat and/or get in a good run if you are a couch to 5k coach.

This week’s run

This week we are crossing Eastland to run Benji route #10.  As always, we need route leaders, so please take a moment to look over the map.  Also, please check out the volunteer sheet for cup cleaning.

Really fast people

From Lee at NRC:

Come meet Picky Bars Co-Founder and 2:29 Marathoner, Stephanie Rothstein, and grab a beer or wine this Friday at Nashville Running Co from 4-7pm! Steph will be talking about the gluten and dairy free Picky Bars and NRC will be providing samples to try out. Following NRC's event on Friday, please cheer Steph and all of the other athletes on at the Music City Distance Carnival on Saturday night at Vanderbilt.
