Wednesday September 5

The Run

This week is Route #10: Benji. We will run 4 miles up into scenic Eastwood Neighbors. There are a couple tricky intersection crossings near the beginning of this route - be sure to stay on the sidewalk and follow your pace leader at least through the first mile. Please be courteous to drivers by stopping at stop signs, (always stop at lights) and be wise when you cross the street (always in crosswalks and not the middle of the road). Remember, that running with 200 people is different than running with 5 - because the people following you may mimic your actions.

Morning run: Meet at 5:50am at 11th & Holly. Evening run: Meet at 6pm at 11th & Holly.

The Next Door and Heroes In Recovery

The Heroes in Recovery 6k is September 15 in Leiper's Fork, TN. Get details and registration info here:

The charity beneficiary for this race is The Next Door ( The Next Door is focused on enabling transformation in the lives of women in crisis. At The Next Door, the people, the program, and the place all contribute to helping women who are re-entering society after incarceration, rehabilitation, or homelessness. Their mission is to address the physical, mental, and spiritual needs of women in crisis, equipping them for lives of wholeness and hope. East Nasty coaches have been training with these women since July to run the race though our Couch-to-5K program.  They are so excited and nervous, but have been diligent in training.  Some have even had to overcome injury, but are back on track!  It is so great to see their confidence build after each training run!

Nashville Running Company Pint Night

Once again, its Pint Night at Nashville Running Company. After the run, head over to the store in 5 Points for free Yazoo beer and to check out NRCs new fall gear.


Each week a volunteer cleans the cups that we all use after the run. East Nasty uses plastic cups so that we don’t produce the trash from throwing away 200+ plus paper cups every week. Would you help us by volunteering to clean the cups one week? Again, it’s pretty simple: 1) Take the cups home after the run. 2) Wash them (by hand or in the dishwasher). 3) Bring them back the next week. Easy stuff. Please sign up for a specific week here.

See you tonight! ENFL!
