Wednesday July 25 - Summer in Shelby
This week we head back into Shelby Park for Route #4: The Big Shelby Loop. 99% percent of the time we need you to run on the left side of the road against traffic, but on this route it’s safer to run on the right side on Davidson Street once you’re in the park. When you make the right turn from Davidson to head up the Sevier/Naval hill, get back over to the left side of the road. Once again we will be running near the East Nashville Farmer’s Market – please be extra courteous and share the roads and greenway with the families and kids that will be out there. It is important for us to be good neighbors so we can continue to use the park.
We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm. We run every Wednesday – rain or shine, hot or cold. You can READ HERE for more details on how our Wednesday night runs work. If you are a run/walker and/or want to get a head start, meet at 5:45pm and join our Lasty Nasty Group. Note that most of that group is participating in, or volunteer coaching, our P2T Couch-to-5K program, so you may want to check them out on facebook to see if anyone is meeting early to run/walk. You may see some of our P2Ters in the park during the run – be sure to give them a good shout out! We are so proud of all the hard work they have been doing over the past few weeks!
East Nashville Tomato 5K
The East Nashville Tomato 5K is our ‘home race’ and every year East Nasty comes out in force. It’s also the 5K that our P2Ters train to run! The race is set for August 11th, 2018 (Tomato Fest day!) and registration is open. Details and registration here: http://www.ymcamidtn.org/events/east-nashville-tomato-5k-2018
Calling for Volunteers! East Nasty Tomato Fest ‘Water Tent’ Booth!
Saturday Aug 11th is Tomato Fest and one of the biggest days of the year for East Nashville and East Nasty! We will have a booth set up right in front of 3 Crow Bar and we will be serving free water to anyone who is thirsty during the Tomato Festival. It is our way of giving back to the community as a thanks for letting us run on the neighborhood streets. We need volunteers to work in 2 hour shifts. The volunteers will be passing out water, selling shirts, refilling coolers, getting ice, and spreading the East Nasty cheer. Sign up for a shift here! Be sure to wear your East Nasty shirt.
