Run #5: The Walking Bridge
6 am or 6 pm Wednesday, July 23rd. (Yes, if you are a morning runner you can join us at 6 a.m.) We always meet at the corner of 11th and Holly in East Nashville.
Remember, if you are more of a walk/runner, join the “Lasty Nasties”. They start the run at about 5:45 pm. Check out their Facebook page for more information.
This week is one of the “exceptions to the rule” as far as running on the left side of the road. On this route, we run on the right side of the road as we go up first avenue, across the Woodland Street Bridge and up Woodland.
Tomato Fest 5k
Remember, this is our “home” race and all of us need to run! If you haven’t signed up yet (Register Here), Wednesday’s the day. Between 4 and 8, go to Yazoo Brew, sign up for the race, and get 2 free beverages. (We are also going to need some volunteers to help out at our booth during the festival, more details soon…)
On Wednesday, a marketing representative will be recruiting runners for a photo shoot, and it’s a paid gig! Seems like a fun way to get paid to run. You are especially desirable if you run with your dog.
Here are some quick details:
Where: Opryland Area
Who: Seeking approximately 18 runners, 6 or more with dogs who are experienced runners to serve as brand ambassadors.
What: Runners will be running, jogging, and walking during this time frame in groups of 3 or 4 to raise awareness of a pet food brand that is focused on balanced nutrition and health. There will be plenty of breaks to stay cool and be able to run in intervals during this time frame. For those with dogs that run frequently, each group will have at least one dog running with their group to keep the theme and add to the awareness.
Compensation: Approximate $16-18/hr, and more for those with a dog.
