Tomato Fest 5k

Tomato Festival Run Through

As all of you should know, the Tomato Fest 5k is quickly approaching; in fact, it is this Saturday!   Since this is basically our home meet, the East Nasties need to come out in full force.   My goal is to have 50 East Nasties in full regalia at the race!  Here is the link to register at active.

In order to prepare for the race (we must defend our home turf), we are going to run the course this week.  The race starts and finishes at the corner of Woodland and 11th, and it is a little bit different than last year, so take a moment to look over the course.

New People:

If you are new to the East Nasties, show up every Wednesday night at the corner of 11th and Holly in East Nashville at 6:00 for a great run with a fun group of folks.  Don’t forget to bring a change of clothes and your ID to grab a 2-for-1 beverage at 3 Crow Bar post-run.

    I haven’t been making the regularly scheduled runs for a while (though I have seen you running past me as I sit at one East Nashville watering hole or another – Cheers!), but I have been staying on top of my running and pre-registered for this thing months ago. I’ll be there. Who’s handing out bloody maries at the end of this thing? It is the tomato 5K after all.

    I’ll see you guys again when the weather cools. Oh and by the way – anyone interested in training for the NOLA half marathon in February? Thought a change of scenery would be nice. And a train ride from Memphis to New Orleans can’t suck.

    Looking forward to running it again this year! It’ll be great to have a ton of Nasties out there.

    Keeping the ass in Nasty,
