For Race Day

A couple of things East Nasty:

-Do not let the weather scare you! As it looks right now, the race is going to happen between some small thunderstorms in the morning (ending around 5am) and a larger thunderstorm later in the afternoon (around 3pm.) The temperature at 7am is predicted to be around 65 degrees. Translation: BRING IT!

-If you are not  running and want to help cheer us on at the Battlefield St. location, you can email Noell Rembert at noellrembert@gmail.com for more details.

-If you would like to help Erin Pauling collect clothes to donate to Thriftsmart after the start of the race, you can contact her at erinpauling@yahoo.com for more details.

Pre race meeting area: The parking lot in front of P.F. Chang’s and Wendy’s on West End Avenue.

POST RACE PICTURE: 10:30 am in the E section of the “family reunion” area.

-Finally, feel free to add a comment to this post (click below where it says comments) to offer up your pace time and projected goal, or any other information that needs to be given out. Several East Nasties are going be leading groups through various corrals to help everyone reach their projected goal.

-Also quick note: Hugh Mundy will be following his usual pre-race ritual of eating a sausage mcmuffin with egg, drinking a venti no-whip frappacino, all while running windsprints with backpack full of M-Z encyclopedias. Unless you also ran at Notre Dame, this technique is not recommended.

Remember people this is supposed to be a FUN event. Relax, get some rest tonight, and be ready to have a blast tomorrow morning.

    Weather Update
    by Country Music Marathon
    April 22, 2010

    Country Music Marathon & 1/2 Marathon Weather Contingency Plan:
    After consultation with all the involved city authorities, due to the weather forecast in the Nashville area which is projecting severe afternoon storms, the MARATHON will most likely be subject to an abbreviated timeline.

    At this time, there is a contingency plan to limit the marathon to 4:30 and under. Any runner who is behind this pace (10:20 per mile) at mile 11.2 will be directed to complete the half marathon course. This timeline may change based on what actual race day weather pattern.

    While we know that this will be a disappointment to some (as it is to us); if implemented, this plan is in the best interests and safety of all involved, especially the participants and volunteers. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

    Meeting in Corral #8 with a group pacing for a 2 hour half or 4 hour full. See you there!

  5. rwjones says:

    I plan to run with David Canas in the 8:30 mile group, which means a finishing time of 1:50:00. Corral 4

  6. Anybody else running the full? I’m aiming for a 9:30 mile and under a 4:15:00 finish. Corral 14

  7. Vicki Schmidt says:

    Aiming for a 4-hour marathon goal, provided the tornadic winds are in my back. Corral #9 assigned, but may find Chuck Hargrove and a few other ENs in corral #8 for pace purposes.

  8. Jim says:

    I am suppose to be in corral 4, but it sounds like corral 8 is the place to be. I’m movin’ back.
