Wednesday October 10th

Lots of stuff to share this week...

The Run

Tonight is Run #3: Musica Out-and-back. Its an out-and-back route - so you can turn around at any point you like for what ever distance you like. If you run over to the other side of the walking bridge and back, that is about 4 miles. If you run to Demonbreun and 8th and back, that is about 5 miles. If you run all the way to the Musica statue and back, that is about 6.4 miles. Check out the map, learn the route (its super easy), and help us by volunteering to be a route leader. We meet at 11th & Holly at 6pm. Two important reminders: 1) wear reflective gear and 2) please stay out of the middle of the road. There are plenty of sidewalks just about  the whole way tonight so you have no excuses.

NRC Pint Night

After the run come down to Nashville Running Company in 5 Points for some free beer and to celebrate all the great races that so many of us ran this past weekend - StumpJump 11 miler and 50K, the Chicago Marathon, and the Music City Half Marathon. Lots of you guys ran new PRs (including to Greg Kyle's incredible 2:49:31 at the Findlay Marathon in Ohio) - congrats!

Hands on Nashville ReCYCLE for Kids

Hands on Nashville is launching a new effort this fall called ReCYCLE for Kids. It's a bike drive over the next two saturdays to collect used kids' bikes. The goal is to collect 300 bikes that volunteers will refurbish over the next two months, and then gift them in December to deserving kids who may not otherwise have the opportunity to own their own bike. Bring your used kids bikes this Saturday Oct 13th to Hands On Nashville's Office at The Trolley Barns at Rolling Mill Hill (37 Peabody St) from 10am to 4pm. Get more more info (including net weeks drop off locations and times) here.
