One fascinating thing about running through East Nashville over the last 10 years has been watching the astonishing transformation of the neighborhood. For example, the next time we do route #2 (early January) check out what’s happening on Boscobel! What used to be isolated around 5 Points /Lockeland Springs/Historic Edgefield area has exploded into the adjoining neighborhoods and shows little sign of slowing. Just wait until the Cayce Housing project gets the proposed facelift.
Anyway, if you remember from 3 months ago, we are no longer doing the Benji route. (Keep that one in your pocket for when you have a smaller group run – it’s a nice one.) Our new #10 route is called Shelby Hills because it takes us into an area of East Nashville that most people are not familiar with: Shelby Hills. Be sure to enjoy the view of the river as you turn right off of 18th, and once you crest the hill on 12th, don’t forget to turn left on Sevier. And take note, because 3 years from now, this neighborhood will look entirely different.
>> Important: As you are running up the hill (you’ll know when this is happening!) please stay on or very close to the sidewalk on the right side of the road. <<
Join us at 6pm at 11th & Holly. Please study the map and volunteer to be a route/pace leader!
