“East Nasty exists to make East Nashville a great place to live and to run and to make running accessible to everyone in our community.”
A couple times a year, we intentionally give back to the neighborhood that makes our Wednesday night runs possible. (Do you think a weekly run like this could happen in Green Hills???) We do this in several different ways, but
tomorrow today it’s time for our yearly 5-points alley/street clean up. After the run on Wednesday we need everyone to hang around for about 20 minutes post-run/pre-3Crow bar. We’ll split you guys up into small groups, give you gloves and garbage bags, and send you to a small section of an East Nashville street (or alley) to clean. Walk through your area, pick up any trash, throw the garbage bag away, and then join your friends at 3 Crow. Easy stuff.
Couch to 5k
One of our trademark programs is our couch to 5k program, which we call ‘Potato to Tomato’ – and it’s right around the corner. It’s an 8-week program that takes participants from walking, to walk/running, to run/walking, to running in the Tomato Festival 5k on August 9. We’ve had over 200 participants each of the last three summers, and we expect similar numbers this year. We’ll have more details posted next week, but here is what we need from you:
(1) Can you be a coach? We meet Monday and Wednesday at 6 p.m. and Saturday at 7 a.m. Yes, you would miss the East Nasty Wednesday runs for 8 weeks, but you would also help change people’s lives. Interested? Email Mike Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(2) Invite your friends/family/co-workers etc… We’ll have our informational session on June 5th at the Margaret Maddux YMCA at 6:30 p.m. Then the first training session will be on Saturday, June 14th.
