Congrats to everyone who ran the Tomato 5k! And thanks to everyone who volunteered or visited our booth at Tomato Fest! What a great weekend! We are back to our regular route schedule this week.
This week is Route #6: Riverside. This route requires a couple of important safety notes:
- First, 99% percent of the time we need you to run on the left side of the road against traffic, but on this route there is one section in Shelby Park where that changes. After passing the lake, as you are going up the hill out of Shelby Park, stay on the RIGHT side of the road. Stay alert as the hill and curve in the road make it difficult to see and be seen by cars. (This is the same hill we run DOWN after Mt Nasty on Route #12). When you reach the top, turn right and go under the train bridge, then turn left onto Riverside. Stay on the left side of Riverside in the bike lane. Remember – we share those roads with walkers, cyclists, and cars.
- Second, there is still a little bit of construction happening along Porter road. PLEASE be careful, watch for traffic, and use your best judgment. Don’t just dart out into traffic.
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. This is the perfect place for all you P2Ters to plug right into!
NRC Pint Night Special Edition
After the run head over to Nashville Running Company for a special tasting ‘pint night’ with Deep Bay Spirits – a new local Nashville company that offers Vodka Soda and Gin Soda canned cocktails. No sugar, no carbs, no preservatives! Sounds good!
Also after the run at NRC we will have a few remaining shirts from Tomato Fest for sale. Including some more of the popular teal shirts that we sold out of! First come, first served! If you missed out on Friday or Saturday this might be your last chance!
