Pre-Run -

If you have ever wondered about those calf-sleeve things you see people wearing, this week is your chance to find out.  A representative from CEP will be at Nashville Running Company at 5:00 p.m.   You'll be able to learn more about their products and actually try some out for the run.

Also, if you want to order a shirt or tank, drop by NRC to try one on.  (Click here for more information)  We will be placing the order at 10 a.m. on Thursday morning.   That will get the shirts here in time for Country Music.

The Run

6 a.m. or 6 p.m. at the corner of 11th and Holly in East Nashville.

Run #2Post - Run

If you didn't have a chance to try on a shirt before the run, NRC will stay open until 7:30.   Then stick around and grab some food or drinks.

Marathon/Half-Marathon Training

Our workout on Thursday is 3 x 2 miles at goal pace.   This is a great final workout to prepare your body to lock into your goal pace.   6 p.m. at the corner of 11th and Holly in East Nashville.

Saturday/Sunday - Our taper has begun!  This weekend we will run 10 miles at a conversational pace.  (Meet at Bongo Java is East Nashville.)   Our final run (April 19/20) will be an easy 60 minutes at Shelby followed by an Easter Brunch (on Sunday).

Boston 2014

Below is an email from former Potato to Tomato participant Rachel Hooper.  If any of you fast nasties are heading to Boston, send her an email!

Hi Mark,

I'm a former East Nasty who participated in the 2010 P2T and then ran with the group for a couple of years.  Last year, my boyfriend and I moved to Boston.  I wanted to extend our southern hospitality to any of the Nasties or NRC peeps running Boston this year.  If anyone needs anything - a homecooked meal, transportation recommendations, last minute GU emergencies - I'll be happy to help.  I'm sure the race organizers have anticipated all these needs, but I just wanted to let the Nasties know they have a local ally if they need it.  And of course, I'll be somewhere on the sidelines cheering them on!  :)  
Hope all is well.  


Rachel Hooper
