Run #8: Rick's Market: Coldest Beer In Town

Rick’s Market – coldest beer in town!

Join us at 6 a.m. or 6 p.m. at the corner of 11th and Holly.

Being Good Neighbors

Nashville is growing, and there is bound to be conflict as neighborhoods become denser.     More cars, more people, bike lanes, pedestrian walk ways, less parking etc….  There is a real push on a city level to become a very pedestrian friendly city, which we vigorously support,  but we need to do our part.   I was talking with some friends this week about intersections.   The fact of the matter is, that pedestrians always have the right of way at intersections, period.   But for us, we need to remember that running with 200 people, is different than running with 5 people.    So even though we may have the right of way, it’s important to be courteous to cars.    First, always cross at intersections.    Next, periodically stop and let cars go.   If you see that a car has been waiting patiently as a stream of runners go by, stop and let them through the intersection.   Third, err on the side of safety.  It’s not worth getting hit to assert your right of way…

    Good afternoon,

    I’ve been getting the East Nasty emails for some time. I’m not a fast runner but I love to run. I just ran my first back to back marathon’s last month. I’ve been on low maintenance runs since and I would love to come run with the group. I had a few questions and was hoping you could help. I drove by 11th and Holly and didn’t see a lot of parking available. Is there a specific place that is the best to park? I’m a little familiar with downtown but not an expert. I read that you have different pace groups, do they run during the week? If so, how will I find the 11 min. pace group?

    Thanks,
    Kathy Dixon
