September 14: Getting Involved Part 3

Over the past two weeks, I have told you how to get involved with our local schools, with EastCan, and today I am going to give you a random conglomerate of ways to get involved…


Join the Team

East Nasty often puts together teams for relays races and other random events. For example, Hunter Lane is putting together a team for the toughmudder in Georgia.   (This looks like a freakin’ cool race!  Check it out and give Hunter an email ASAP.  mlane52@yahoo.com.  He wants to put together a team by the end of this week!!!)   Heidi Huerta has a group running the women’s half marathon.  (hphuerta@gmail.com).  Christy Brown is gathering folks who are training for an early December marathon for training runs on Sunday morning (christylynnbrown@yahoo.com)  Don’t be shy!  Give these folks an email and join us for a great weekend get-away!

Clean your neighborhood

East Nasty does two alley clean-ups a year.  One before the Tomato Festival, and one before the Country Music Marathon.  This is a great way to love your community.  Do you want clean up your neighborhood?  You get the people, and Will Acuff will help you organize.  (This is a great way to meet your neighbors…organize your entire block to clean up the nearby alleys…)  Send Will an email at cleaneast@gmail.com to get started!

Bring Shoes

Cary Graham collects used running shoes, cleans them up, and then delivers them to those who may need a new pair.  So when you are ready to upgrade, go see Drew at Fleet Feet, and bring us your old one!   Or…if you know someone who could really use a new pair of shoes, just let us know, and we will do everything we can to get them a good pair!

Support local races

Tom King water stop?  Best ever.  Women’s half-marathon cheering section?? We’re in.  The Jones brothers do a water stop better than any I have ever known.   I will broadcast opportunities to join us at races.  (For the women’s half, email Rod Jones (rwjones97@yahoo.com) if you are interested in joining us.)

Order a shirt…

Lululemon is going to do our fall shirt this year!  They are by far our nicest shirts yet.   Check them out…women’smen’s both will be in grey.   Lululemon will have a size run available to try on at the run this Wednesday.  Also, we will be ordering hoodies again this winter.  More details in November…

Run!

This week’s run is run #11.  (Come next week to run the Nasty and earn a sticker!)   Take a little bit of time to observe all the amazing church buildings that we will pass during this run.  The architecture is amazing!

See you tomorrow!
