This week we head back into Shelby Park for Route #4: The Big Shelby Loop. There are a few really dark spots on this run, so please be sure to bring your reflective gear and even a headlamp. We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm. We run every Wednesday – rain or shine, sweltering heat or bitter cold. If you are a run/walker and want to get a head start, meet at 5:45pm and join the Lasty Nasties. You can READ HERE for more info on how our Wednesday night runs work.
The East Nasty Board met this past weekend and elected new officers. First, we want to tell you that our Founder, Mark Miller, has decided to step down from his role as President. Keeping our club and non-profit running is a lot of work and Mark has given some 12 years of his time, energy, and heart to us and all of you to build this great organization. With a third child on the way and other life responsibilities mounting, Mark says that the time is right for him to take a step back. While we will miss his day to day leadership, our organization is set up pretty strong and we will keep doing what we do: making East Nashville a great place to live and run, and making running accessible to everyone in our community. We are incredibly grateful to Mark and are working on plans to honor him in the near future. Stay tuned.
So, for 2017, your new President is Jeremy Taylor! Many of you know Jeremy from his leadership of our Couch-to-5K program. The rest of the Board remains in place with a few new officer roles. See our About page for details. But, no matter who is ‘in charge’, East Nasty has always been a volunteer run organization – we need you! Save the date Wednesday February 22nd – we’re planning a special event that night immediately following the run that we would like everyone to attend. We will have more details soon.
We hope to see you at the run tonight. Just about everyone on the Board will be there. Come say hello!
