Wednesday, March 11: New Route, Volunteer & Thursday workout is on!
New Route: The Electric Slide
For various reasons, the “Shelby Hills” route has been scrapped. Which is a bummer, but exciting because we get to create a new route #10. When we were mapping the replacement route, we wanted to: (1) still run through the Shelby Hills neighborhood, and (2) highlight the “hills” part of that neighborhood. So …. Introducing “The Electric Slide”:
Here are a couple of quick notes: (1) when you are running up the hill out of Shelby Park, you have to make a hard left hand turn halfway up the hill (around the 1.75 mile mark). (2) We run all the way down Electric Avenue until it ends. (3) When you turn left from Sevier onto 14th, cross the road and run on the right side of 14th. (4) When you turn right on Lenore, remember that this was Duane’s idea.
Even if you are a long time East Nasty take a moment to look over the map, because we’ve really never run through this part of East Nashville before. (You can even print it off it you are prone to getting lost…)
Where: The corner of 11th and Holly in East Nashville
When: 6 p.m. on Wednesday
Want to give back? Want to help others to achieve their goal? Want $15 off a Team Magic triathlon, duathlon, or half marathon? All you have to do is volunteer on March 22nd at East Nasty’s water station from 7:30 AM to 10:30 AM at the Music City Half Marathon and 10k! The race starts at Public Square Park and will be a mostly flat course excluding the first and last mile. Join us for a morning of fun giving back to our sport. If you’re ready to commit- sign up to volunteer here: http://team-magic.com/volunteers/sign-up. In the notes section, please state that you are an East Nasty volunteer– so we can all be placed at the same water station! Beth McCaskill is leading this effort for us, so if you have any questions, e-mail her at BMcCaskill@bassberry.com.
Thursday workout is on!
Come join us at 6p.m. at the corner of 11th and Holly to do a much needed workout after several weeks of sliding around on the ice!
Saturday Half Marathon
This Saturday our half/full training groups are going to run on the CMM course. The advanced group is going to run the entire half-marathon. This is a great time to learn the ups and downs of the course. Everyone is welcome to join us so spread the word! We meet at 8 a.m. at the base of the pedestrian bridge on the LP field side of the river.
