Route #1 / Pint Night
This week is a great week to invite someone new. The run is “only” 3 miles and post-run NRC is hosting their monthly pint night.
If you invite someone, remind them to wear reflective gear.
Marathon Training has begun/change of location
We had a great turn out on Saturday for our first half/full marathon training session. If you want to join us it’s free, and we meet every Saturday (but one) until race day. Please take a moment and register, because that is how we will communicate with you during the training period. (Note: registering for our training does not register you for the race and vice versa. And even if you are not planning on racing in April, you are welcome to join us for these Saturday long runs.)
Speaking of which….
This Saturday we are moving locations since there is a race at Shelby Bottoms. The plan was to meet at the nature center, but we will be meeting at the base of the pedestrian bridge on the Nissan Stadium side of the river. The marathon training will meet at 7:30, and the half training will meet at 8. Please make a note of this change!
I mentioned that for marathon training, we are training every Saturday morning except one. That day is March 5. That day we are encouraging everyone to race. That is a perfect weekend to race as we prepare for the St. Jude Rock n’ Roll races April.
Consider joining us for our first destination race to Chattanooga the weekend of March 4 – 6. There is a 5k, half marathon, full marathon and a marathon relay. We have a discount code for 20% off (“eastnasty”), and there are some great deals on hotels. Finally, if you are joining us for half/full marathon training, this race fits in perfectly! Here is more information.
