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.
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.
This is our one out and back route, leaving you plenty of mileage options.
Here is a blog posting about how things work on Wednesday nights. Take a moment and read up if you have never joined us before.
