LOTS of info this week. Make sure to read all the way through for important info…
We mentioned last week that we’ve made some changes to how we organize our calendar. We’re adding 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 – which this week is. So, this is Wednesday is again a bonus ‘week 13’ – but of our SECOND quarter of 2018. And were going to run…
This week is Route #9: Nissan Stadium – home to your Tennessee Titans! Please be sure to cross 10th street at the crosswalk at 10th & Fatherland. The increase in construction and parking on 10th has made visibility much more difficult – so we need you to be sure to use the crosswalk and absolutely not cross in the middle of the road. Check out the route map on Strava: https://www.strava.com/routes/8843009
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. Remember we share the roads with walkers, cyclists, and cars – please help us be good neighbors!
And with the new quarter, you’ll see Board members and East Nasty legends Sarah Brown and Beth Meadows leading the next 13 weeks of Wednesday nights! Look for them each week making announcements and getting the run going. We will start our 12 run cycle over with Route #1 next week!
Why are we running this route this week? Because our friends at Nashville Running Company have moved to a new location and we’re gonna run right past it – or maybe just to it, because it’s the first Wednesday of the month which means . . . it’s Pint Night! So, it’s the perfect time to come visit the new store location at 820 Woodland Street! Same NRC, but with more bathrooms and a shower! As always, beer will be provided courtesy of Yazoo Brewing Company. Parking wise — there’s a free lot across Woodland at Eastside Station, as well as street parking along 9th.

Dream Center 5k
The West Nashville Dream Center, a ministry center committed to protecting and empowering those in our community living in distress, will have representatives at the run this week. They are hosting the Dream Center 5k on Saturday, May 12. This 5k is about walking (or running) together as a community. The race will start and end at the Dream Center in The Nations. 5 kilometers is the same distance that many of the families who use the Dream Center would have to walk or take the bus to get groceries. The West Nashville Dream Center’s food ministry has a goal to help supplement groceries and meals for our neighbors on a weekly basis. They distribute nearly 2,000 pounds of perishable food from our center on a weekly basis.
