Half/Full Marathon Training
January will be here before you know it, and with it starts our half/full marathon training. Our information page is up (but not quite finished yet). Here are a couple of highlights:
1) Plan on coming to a 5 mile run/informational meeting on November 30th at 8 a.m. at Nashville Running Company. We’ll burn some of those Thanksgiving calories, and then have time for some Q&A about our program.
2) This year we are going to communicate via our Emma account. So please take a moment to read through our informational page and then sign up for the half or full marathon training. (Coming soon.)
3) Monthly brunches! We are going to have 5 Sunday brunches scattered throughout the training. We have three of the five covered, but could use two more hosts. It’s pot-luck style, we’re just looking for people who are willing to open their home. We’ve looking for East Nashville residents. If interested, please email Rachel Schaffer firstname.lastname@example.org.
December 11, at the Zimmermans, 1306 Woodland. We’ll have food, drinks and festive music. The one thing that we could use would be desserts. Are there are any bakers out there would who be willing to bring something?! We’ll have the 2014 training logs ($10 – but there are limited quantities so get one quick) and East Nasty custom Swiftwick socks ($20). The party starts right after the run, and it’s only 3 blocks away from our meeting location, so just plan on walking.
Finally, every year we have to pay $5 per member to maintain our RRCA (Road Runner Clubs of America) affiliation. So please bring $5 to the Christmas party.
Wednesday 6 a.m. or 6 p.m. at the corner of 11th and Holly. We meet rain or shine, hot or cold, light or dark. Remember there is no such thing as inclement weather, only inadequate gear! So as we move deeper into fall/winter be prepared to run in cold, dark conditions.
