Half Marathon? One Mile? August 1.

Wednesday – August 1st – 2012

Hello Everyone – for the next 2 Wednesdays we are going to do things a little different at the Wednesday night runs. Tonight instead of running route #7 we are going to head down to LP field and run the 1 mile course for the ” Music city Mile” race coming up on August 16th. We will meet tonight at 11th & Holly like always – run down Fatherland to LP field – run the 1 mile course – then run back. All total the run will be around 4 miles.

Next week we will be running the course for the East Tomato 5k that is coming up on August 11th. We will also be joined by the East Nasty Potato to Tomato 5k group that has been training down in Shelby park all summer for the race.

As you should know by now East Nasty is a sponsor of both the East Tomato 5k and the Music City Mile so we want to do all that we can to help make both races successful. Please spread the word about these events and plan on attending them yourself.

Are you planning on running the women’s 1/2 ?

If you are running the women’s half marathon in September, or if you are just looking for some weekend long runs, starting next weekend Alyce Scrivner is organizing Sunday long runs.  The runs will start at different locations to include much of the race course.

If you are interested in joining, please send her an email (scrivnerhome@comcast.net) or look for her this Wednesday.  As always, these runs are free and open to anyone!

Music City Mile

We still need our entire Wednesday night crew to sign up for the music city mile.  It’s Thursday, August 16th.  Details below.

Register now for the music city mile!   This is going to be a fast course, so there could be a couple of state records (female / male) going down…  The schedule for that evening is as follows:

6:00 Middle School Mile

6:20 Open Females (39 & under)

6:40 Open Males (39 & under)

7:00 Master Females (40 & up)

7:20 Masters Males (40 & up)

7:40 Elite Females ($300 to the winner!)

8:00 Elite Males ($300 to the winner!)

As mentioned for the past several weeks there will be plenty of volunteer opportunities coming up for all of these races. Please ask on Wednesday night how you can help. Hope to see everyone tonight on 11th and Holly at 6:00

    Hey Nasties! Tonight after the preview of the Music City Mile, come by NRC for some Yazoo beer! We have the store all decked out for the Olympics and will be getting pumped up for the start of the Track and Field events on Friday!

    Also tonight we will be sending off Dan Morrison to become a West Coast Nasty as he heads out to Malibu, CA where he has taken a professorship at Pepperdine University!
