We’ve made some changes to how we organize our calendar. We have 12 routes that we cycle through 4 times a year which has always left us with a month of random runs at the end of the year. Instead, we’re going to tack on a bonus run during each now 13-week quarter. Sometimes it will be at the end, or beginning, of a quarter, sometimes in the middle of it for a holiday or special date. It will usually be one of our regular routes, or it may be something new. So, this is Wednesday is our bonus ‘week 13’ of our first quarter of 2018. And were going to run…
One of our most popular runs: Route #5: Walking Bridge. It’s always fun to run across the bridge and through downtown. As we run through downtown, remember that you are representing our organization and that our club’s safety, reputation, and standing in the community is a responsibility you share in. That means crossing the street only in crosswalks and intersections – never in the middle of the road. That means stopping at stoplights and to slow down and use caution at intersections. We need you to be respectful and courteous to pedestrians on the sidewalks downtown, along with other runners, cyclists, and motorists that we share the road with. Thanks for doing your part!
We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm. We run every Wednesday – rain or shine, hot or cold. You can READ HERE for more details on how our Wednesday night runs work. If you are a run/walker and/or want to get a head start, meet at 5:45pm and join our Lasty Nasty Group.
Cup Cleaning Volunteer and Raffle
Our cup cleaning schedule and raffle will also adjust to the new 13-week schedule. We will do this quarter’s raffle drawing tonight or next week. And next quarter’s volunteer sign up will be online in just a couple days.
The Nashville running community lost a great champion on Sunday with the passing of Peter Pressman. As President of the Nashville Striders, Peter inspired many others to join him in using running to make a positive impact on themselves and their communities. Peter’s smile and zest for life were infectious. He will be missed by all who knew him and loved him. Our condolences go out to Ruth, the Pressman family, and all of the lives he touched personally and through the Nashville Striders. Our East Nasty run tonight will be dedicated in honor of Peter.

Rock and Roll Race Weekend
The St Jude Rock n Roll Half and Full is coming up in just a few weeks on April 28th. If you’re not running the race, we will have a cheer station you can join. And don’t forgot about our annual post race party that night. More details to come!
