Tomato Festival 2013
The Tomato Festival 5k is our "homecoming" game, and we need to show up. Register here, if you have yet to do so, or at the very least, come out and cheer on your fellow East Nasties and the new crop of 250+ couch to 5kers.
As you also may know, it is almost a requirement that the temperature and humidity are both over 90 for the Tomato Fest. So every year East Nasty has a water stop. But not for the race, it's for the festival. East Nasty has a booth outside of 3 Crow Bar where we hand out the extra water from the race, and keep 3 coolers full of cold water to hand out to festival goers. It is a great way to give back to the community that we love, but we need your help. We need 15 volunteers (in groups of 3) to take 2-hour shifts where you do three things (1) Hand out water, (2) sell the soon to be released summer East Nasty tee, and (3) explain to people what "East Nasty" means. It's really a lot of fun, and a great way to meet people.
Meet this Wednesday, 6 a.m. or 6 p.m at the corner of 11th and Holly for route #7: Little Hollywood. (Want to learn more? Here is a brief history of that area of town.)
Friday morning add some strength training to your running. Our summer Tabata Fridays continue this week at 6:15 a.m. at the East Literature track. Park behind the school by the tennis courts.
P.S. Next week, August 7th - is going to be a great Wednesday. A quick preview: meet the couch to 5kers, pint night, get a big Ragnar discount for your team, and run with this guy.
