Wednesday August 30 - Churches, Heroes, Crows
This week is Route #11 – The Church Run. Named so because of the dozen plus church buildings we pass on this route. Look up along the way and enjoy some of the architecture and historic buildings. It’s a great week to invite new runners and beginners – because you can easily stop after just 2 miles of the first loop of the figure 8.
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, stay on the sidewalks or to the far left on the road, obey traffic signals and stop signs, and cross only in marked crosswalks. Help us be good neighbors and reflect our club well to the community!
The 2017 Heroes in Recovery 6K is Saturday Sept 9th in Leiper's Fork. East Nasty has a history of supporting the Heroes 6k - both in participation and volunteering! The charity beneficiary for this race is The Next Door - an organization focused on enabling transformation in the lives of women in crisis. At The Next Door, the people, the program, and the place all contribute to helping women who are re-entering society after incarceration, rehabilitation or homelessness. For the 6th year, East Nasty coaches have been helping train the clients at The Next Door in preparation for the race! You can find out more and register (or volunteer!) for the race at their website: heroes6k.com Use discount code ENFL2017 for $6 off registration - that makes the race cost less than $30! Finisher medals, cash awards, and a great cause! Do it!
3 Crow Bar
Did you know that we originally started running on Wednesday evenings (as opposed to another day of the week) is because 3 Crow Bar has always had a 2-for-1 special on Wednesdays? It's true! And did you know that the 3 Crow ownership has been by far our largest single donor each year? Also true! We are really grateful for that and value our continuing relationship with our favorite local bar. So, this week when you head over to 3CB for a post run pint, be patient, be extra kind to the staff, and tip well! We're a much much bigger group than when we started (with just a dozen runners in 2008), and it can get a little busy on Wednesdays right after the run - but Maha and the staff continue to welcome us and work hard for us every Wednesday night! Let's be sure to show 'em some love.
