Wednesday, June 6

I know this is the first Wednesday of the month, but unfortunately there is no pint night at NRC.  Lee is out enjoying the Olympic trials, so we'll have to wait until he gets back. Wait... pint night is saved.

Dr. Tom Hadley has invited everyone to East Side Smiles after the run for a pint (or two).   East Side Smiles is that small building right next to East High School, directly across Gallatin from Marche.   The address is 7 North 10th street.

Thanks Tom!

Fall Half Training

Nashville's big half marathon is in April...which is a terrible time for a full or half marathon in the south.    The fall/ early winter is a perfect time to tackle  13.1 or 26.2, which is why we offer half training for the fall.

The Fall Half training will start on Sunday, July 10th and will loosely follow the Hal Higdon Novice 2 training plan, so first week will be 4 miles for the long run.  (Note: If you are a more advanced runner, we encourage you to join up with the PR bandits.)  It’s a 12 week program, so it will prepare runners for the first Fall Nashville run which is called Half Full Races-Nashville on September 25th.  Other races that are in Nashville this Fall are Race 13.1 on Oct. 29 and Nashville Half on November 12.

The runs will be on Sunday mornings starting at 7:00 am from different locations around Nashville.  There will be a weekly email that lays out the details of the run.  There are no specific pace groups, but typically we have every pace from 8-13:00.  There will be hydration at the mid-way point on the runs and at the end.
Contact for more information.  Remember, correspondence will be through email so you will need to contact Alyce if you want to get on that list!
