Wednesday May 17 - A circle that turns round upon itself

Route #8

Tonight is Route #8: Rick's Market - which is not only run number 8, but also a figure 8. Growing up I loved 'Schoolhouse Rock!' And one of my favorites was about the number 8 - "a circle that turns round upon itself". We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm. We run every Wednesday – rain or shine, hot or cold. If you are a run/walker and want to get a head start, meet at 5:45pm and join our Lasty Nasty Group. You can READ HERE for more details on how our Wednesday night runs work. Remember we share the roads with walkers, cyclists, and cars - please help us be good neighbors!

NRC Altra Wear Test

Our friends at Nashville Running Company are back with another wear test opportunity for you tonight. Stop by the store before the run to grab a demo pair of Altra Running's new Escalantes. Lee says: "These beauties offer a responsive yet plush ride. Come give them a spin -- your feet will love you for it!"

'PR Bandits' Saturday Long Runs

PR Bandits are back! Beginning this weekend, East Nasty is once again partnering with the ‘PR Bandits’ who are hosting supported long runs on Saturday mornings throughout the summer and fall. Saturday supported runs will be held at various favorite running routes across Nashville. Most of the runs offer various distance options and all paces are welcome. Join the PR Bandits Facebook Group for more info, to get run invites, and to link up with other runners. And watch this blog on Thursdays for the info about each week's run. This Saturday's run is on the Harpeth River Greenway. Meet at the Warner Nature Center at 7:30am. Which is not 8. And thus fails my 'Schoolhouse Rock!' anecdote. But it would be great, if you weren't late. ;)
