Wednesday August 1 - The Struggle is Real
Can you finish a half marathon in under 90 mins while pushing a TRIPLE stroller? This mom did! If you can do that, then get a sitter and meet us at Pint Night. But if you're not quite there yet, you're in good company. Come struggle and get better with us tonight. Oh, and Saturdays and/or Sundays, too!
This Wednesday is one of our most popular runs: Route #5: Walking Bridge. It’s always fun to run across the bridge and through downtown. As we run through downtown, remember that you are representing our organization and that our club’s safety, reputation, and standing in the community is a responsibility you share in. That means crossing the street only in crosswalks and intersections – never in the middle of the road. That means stopping at stoplights and to slow down and use caution at intersections. We need you to be respectful and courteous to pedestrians on the sidewalks downtown, along with other runners, cyclists, and motorists that we share the road with. Thanks for doing your part!
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.)
It’s Pint Night at Nashville Running Company after the run! If you don't know where they are at, we run right past the store towards the end of this route – keep an eye out for it! NRC always offers a 10% discount to East Nasty runners. Have a pint of some Yazoo and pick up some new gear while you’re there! Also, Wounded Warrior Project will be onsite promoting their race this Fall.
Weekend Long Runs and Fall Training
We've got 2 options for you for free weekend long runs this summer and fall - Saturday and/or Sunday.
Saturday mornings - PR Bandits. East Nasty is partnering with the ‘PR Bandits’ again in 2018 who are hosting supported long runs on Saturday mornings all around Nashville. Check them out on Facebook HERE for when and where details.
Sunday mornings - Fall Marathon Training. Join Alyce Scrivner and a bunch of other East Nasties that do long runs on Sundays at 7:00 am, also meeting at many different locations throughout the city.

East Nasty Tomato Fest ‘Water Tent’ Booth! - As usual we will have a booth set up right in front of 3 Crow Bar and we will be selling our new shirts and 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 still need a few more volunteers to work a 2 hour shift. 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.
