Dee's BBQ. Turn left here...



Don’t be afraid of the dark…or cold.

It actually feels like fall today.   Damp and cool.  So it’s time to move the workouts indoors right?  Wrong!   East Nasty runs year round!   While it’s definitely harder to get out the door when it’s cold, once you’re running you’ll never notice the brisk air.   So get some reflective gear, grab your East Nasty hoody and join us for Run #6: 4.55 miles down Riverside.

Odds and Ends

1) We will be running next week.   Come join us to proactively burn off those Thanksgiving calories!

2) Bring $30 and grab your hoody.   Better yet, bring $40, grab your hoody and join us at 3 Crow.

3) Do you think that the sophomore slump with high school distance runners is because they are going through a growth spurt?  It’s a theory that I am working on…

4) East Nasty will be training for the 1/2 marathon.  Pencil December 13th on your calendar for a run/informational meeting  The training will begin in earnest January 3.

    Mark, I think puberty and body development is a plausible theory as it relates to adolescent athletic performance. For three miles I improved :24 between high school FR to SO years, :36 SO to JR year, :21 JR to SR year. Maybe I never matured (quit laughing), or shaving that peach fuzz moustache reduced wind resistance.

    5. Watch out for curbs. They can jump out at you if you are not careful.

    you have a theory??

    It may have something to do with llamas with hats.

    I had a sophomore slump because that’s when I started doing distance running. The only sign of hope was that I was willing to keep trying. I growth-spurted after that year. Improvement seemed to come then and thereafter based on how I trained, not how I grew.
