Dog Food Drive
Remember the mission of East Nasty: “We love our neighborhood, and we exist to make East Nashville a great place to live and run, and to make running accessible to everyone in our community.” In that light, sometime this week, Drew Landerman from the TN CO-OP is going to drop off 960 pounds of dog food for East Can. That food, purchased with your donations, combined with the bags of food you brought last week, yielded well over 1200 pounds of food for East Can. Thanks guys!
Tonight’s Run – Route #7
Little Hollywood – 3.2 miles. Meet at 6 p.m at 11th & Holly. Wear reflective gear (and even a headlamp, too).
NRC Pint Night
After the run, everyone is invited down to Nashville Running Company for the monthly pint night.
2013 Half and Full Marathon Training
Once again, remember the mission of East Nasty: “We love our neighborhood, and we exist to make East Nashville a great place to live and run, and to make running accessible to everyone in our community.” To that end, we offer free half-marathon or full marathon training starting in January. While the training is free, it does not mean that everybody is ready to train for a half-marathon. Right now is the time that you need to be thinking about whether you want to try it or not. If you want to join us, we ask that you be capable of running 5 miles without walking before January. Even better, would be if you were running 3-5 miles at least 3 times a week. This is not because we are elitist – it’s pretty obvious that we are not. This prerequisite is to keep you, the runner, uninjured and excited about running. Going from 3 miles to 13.1 miles might not seem like a lot, but in reality it is a huge jump in mileage and can lead to serious burn-out/injury. So if you are not at 5 miles yet, you have 6 weeks to get there, and then join us in January!
See you tonight! ENFL!
