PR Bandits Saturday Morning Run –River Park (Brentwood)

July 21, 2016

East Nasty is partnering with the ‘PR Bandits’ who are hosting supported long runs on Saturday mornings. This Saturday we will be supplying water on route.

We all have to travel to the burbs at some point. Sometimes the trip, especially pre-6am and without traffic, is well worth it. River Park is a great run, although it can be a bit confusing of a course so please review the map. This loop will take you well into the park, then onto a few residential roads before returning. We start the run off of Concord Rd, on Knox Vally Dr. at 6am. The gates don’t get opened until around 6 but you can find easy parking at the YMCA or library on either side of the park with the greenway connecting both to the park.

9.5 mile Loop (w/ Shorter Out and Back Options)

Route #5

Drew’s favorite.  6 pm at the corner of 11th and Holly in East Nashville.

Run #5: The Walking Bridge

Post -Run Specials

So most of us know that 3 Crow offers 2-4-1 beers on Wednesday nights.  But there are several other specials, including a brand new one that is really exciting… The Local Taco.   The deal for East Nasties is:

2-4-1 Tacos

$3 Craft Beers

Free Chips & Salsa with any purchase

Yet another fantastic reason to stay after the run to enjoy the great things East Nashville has to offer.    Just head over there after the run and tell them you’re with East Nasty – better yet, don’t change or throw on an East Nasty shirt.

August 13th

August 13th is a great day in East Nashville.  It’s the Tomato Festival, and the East Tomato 5k.   It’s also a great day for East Nasty where we are the official water stop of the festival (not the race).   Meaning that we supply water for the festival goers!    To make this happen we need some volunteers.   Next week I will have more details, right now I just need you to consider helping out on that day.


PR Bandits Saturday Morning Run –Bicentennial Mall/ Cumberland River Green Way

July 14, 2016

East Nasty is partnering with the ‘PR Bandits’ who are hosting supported long runs on Saturday mornings. This Saturday we will be supplying Camelbak Elixir and SOS hydration so if you prefer anything else, please make sure you bring your own along!

Starting at 6am from Bicentennial Mall on 7th Ave North (the roundabout about a block down from Jefferson St.), this run makes its way around the new ball park, up into Germantown, across MetroCenter, and then on the greenway directly into downtown. We finish the run with a few well deserved hills, and either make it an easy 8, or find a group that wants to add on some… Who knows, you may want to just do it again!

Hydration will be located at the start and finish, as well as the enterance onto the greenway, appoximalty 4 miles into the run.

Fall Half Training – still time to join!

Nashville’s big half marathon is in April…which is a terrible time for a full or half marathon in the south.    The fall/ early winter is a perfect time to tackle  13.1 or 26.2, which is why we offer half training for the fall.

The Fall Half training will start on Sunday, July 10th and will loosely follow the Hal Higdon Novice 2 training plan, so first week will be 4 miles for the long run.  (Note: If you are a more advanced runner, we encourage you to join up with the PR bandits.)  It’s a 12 week program, so it will prepare runners for the first Fall Nashville run which is called Half Full Races-Nashville on September 25th.  Other races that are in Nashville this Fall are Race 13.1 on Oct. 29 and Nashville Half on November 12.

The runs will be on Sunday mornings starting at 7:00 am from different locations around Nashville.  There will be a weekly email that lays out the details of the run.  There are no specific pace groups, but typically we have every pace from 8-13:00.  There will be hydration at the mid-way point on the runs and at the end.
Contact a-scrivner@comcast.net for more information.  Remember, correspondence will be through email so you will need to contact Alyce if you want to get on that list!

July 7, 2016

East Nasty is partnering with the ‘PR Bandits’ who are hosting long runs on Saturday mornings.

We Return to East Nashville at 6 a.m.with a flat and fast run. *UPDATE* Meeting at the parking lot near the baseball fields and lake (and weird melting chrome bird), we will all start by runing the Greenway (8 mile O&B). For those feeling like adding on somemiles, just keep going and make it a figure eight, doing a lap around the LP field (making it 14 miles total). Two runs identifed, but total distance is your choice!

Hydration will not be provided due to scheduling this week but there are drinking fountains at the Nature Center as well as the end of the greenway before looping back.

July 5, 2016

I know this is the first Wednesday of the month, but unfortunately there is no pint night at NRC.  Lee is out enjoying the Olympic trials, so we’ll have to wait until he gets back.

Wait… pint night is saved.

Dr. Tom Hadley has invited everyone to East Side Smiles after the run for a pint (or two).   East Side Smiles is that small building right next to East High School, directly across Gallatin from Marche.   The address is 7 North 10th street.

Thanks Tom!

PR Bandits Saturday Morning Run – Stones River Greenway

June 30, 2016

East Nasty is partnering with the ‘PR Bandits’ who are hosting supported long runs on Saturday mornings. This Saturday we will be supplying Camelbak Elixir hydration so if you prefer anything else, please make sure you bring your own along!

This out and back run is currently the furthest east the PR Bandits run. We meet at 6a.m. at the greenway trailhead in Kohl’s parking lot off Lebanon Pike and Jackson Downs Blvd, an easy start point for the Stones River Greenway. This is a multi-directional out and back, so we get to see people coming and going multiple times. It is a great greenway that allows you to chose your distance. For the most part this is a flat run, so make sure to enjoy!

Since we cross the start finishline about 4.5 miles into the run, it is probable we will only have hydration at one location on this run, so please prepare accordingly.
