Wednesday, August 3: Volunteers, Pint Night, Route #7

August 2, 2016

7 More People…

As runners we know that races need water stops… but so does an outdoor festival in early August!    That is why each year East Nasty runs a water stop – for the Tomato Festival.   This is our way to give back to the community that has embraced us, and it is also our biggest fundraiser.    But we can’t do it without volunteers.

We have 7 more slots to fill – and these are the ones that always fill up last…early morning and late afternoon.    But believe me it’s not a chore, it’s really fun!   Volunteering is a fun new way to experience a festival, and an opportunity to meet some new folks.  Please consider signing up for a 2 hour shift.   Sign up for a shift.

Route #7

Little Hollywood.   If you are new, here’s some information about our Wednesday night runs.

After the run, rehydrate by heading over to NRC for their monthly pint night!

The Biggest Weekend of the Year for East Nashville

The East Nashville Tomato Fest is on August 12 – 13, which of course includes the East Nashville Tomato 5K on Saturday at 7:30am. Obviously we want you to participate in the race, but it’s a big day for us and we need volunteers to help us at the festival. Read below to see how you can help.

1) Run in the East Nashville Tomato 5k race.

The race starts at 7:30am at East Park and there will be East Nasties all over the place. This is our goal race for the Potato-to-Tomato Group, so cheer these folks on as they tackle what for many of them seemed like an unattainable goal!

2) Volunteer before the race.

We have additional opportunities for East Nasties to be a part of the 2016 East Nashville 5k’s 10th anniversary.  Due to the continued growth and popularity of this annual race, the Y is wanting to move to a wave start to alleviate congestion at the start of the race.  Volunteers are needed to assist in the corals based on estimated pace.  The Y is looking for 5 – 10 pace/coral volunteers to help separate and start the various groups.  If you are interested in this or would like to lead this effort please contact Jeremy Taylor at 615-424-7794 or inglewoodlifer@gmail.com

3) Work the East Nasty ‘water tent booth’ during the East Tomato Fest.

From 9:00 am to 6:00 pm on Saturday. East Nasty will have a tent set up right in front of 3 Crow Bar and we will be serving free water to anyone who is thirsty during the Tomato Festival. It is our way of giving back to the community as a thanks for letting us run on the neighborhood streets. We need volunteers to work a 2 hour shift. The volunteers will be passing out water, selling shirts, refilling coolers, getting ice, and spreading the East Nasty cheer. SIGN UP FOR A SHIFT HERE. Be sure to wear an East Nasty shirt. Contact Mark for more details: mark@eastnastyforlife.com

Speaking of Shirts…

At the Tomato Festival we will be bringing back some old favorites and releasing our 2016 East Nasty shirt.   As always graphic designer extraordinaire Duane Stephenson has created a masterpiece!

Now for this week’s run…

PR Bandits Saturday Morning Run –River Park (Brentwood)

July 21, 2016

East Nasty is partnering with the ‘PR Bandits’ who are hosting supported long runs on Saturday mornings. This Saturday we will be supplying water on route.

We all have to travel to the burbs at some point. Sometimes the trip, especially pre-6am and without traffic, is well worth it. River Park is a great run, although it can be a bit confusing of a course so please review the map. This loop will take you well into the park, then onto a few residential roads before returning. We start the run off of Concord Rd, on Knox Vally Dr. at 6am. The gates don’t get opened until around 6 but you can find easy parking at the YMCA or library on either side of the park with the greenway connecting both to the park.

9.5 mile Loop (w/ Shorter Out and Back Options)

Route #5

Drew’s favorite.  6 pm at the corner of 11th and Holly in East Nashville.

Run #5: The Walking Bridge

Post -Run Specials

So most of us know that 3 Crow offers 2-4-1 beers on Wednesday nights.  But there are several other specials, including a brand new one that is really exciting… The Local Taco.   The deal for East Nasties is:

2-4-1 Tacos

$3 Craft Beers

Free Chips & Salsa with any purchase

Yet another fantastic reason to stay after the run to enjoy the great things East Nashville has to offer.    Just head over there after the run and tell them you’re with East Nasty – better yet, don’t change or throw on an East Nasty shirt.

August 13th

August 13th is a great day in East Nashville.  It’s the Tomato Festival, and the East Tomato 5k.   It’s also a great day for East Nasty where we are the official water stop of the festival (not the race).   Meaning that we supply water for the festival goers!    To make this happen we need some volunteers.   Next week I will have more details, right now I just need you to consider helping out on that day.


PR Bandits Saturday Morning Run –Bicentennial Mall/ Cumberland River Green Way

July 14, 2016

East Nasty is partnering with the ‘PR Bandits’ who are hosting supported long runs on Saturday mornings. This Saturday we will be supplying Camelbak Elixir and SOS hydration so if you prefer anything else, please make sure you bring your own along!

Starting at 6am from Bicentennial Mall on 7th Ave North (the roundabout about a block down from Jefferson St.), this run makes its way around the new ball park, up into Germantown, across MetroCenter, and then on the greenway directly into downtown. We finish the run with a few well deserved hills, and either make it an easy 8, or find a group that wants to add on some… Who knows, you may want to just do it again!

Hydration will be located at the start and finish, as well as the enterance onto the greenway, appoximalty 4 miles into the run.

Fall Half Training – still time to join!

Nashville’s big half marathon is in April…which is a terrible time for a full or half marathon in the south.    The fall/ early winter is a perfect time to tackle  13.1 or 26.2, which is why we offer half training for the fall.

The Fall Half training will start on Sunday, July 10th and will loosely follow the Hal Higdon Novice 2 training plan, so first week will be 4 miles for the long run.  (Note: If you are a more advanced runner, we encourage you to join up with the PR bandits.)  It’s a 12 week program, so it will prepare runners for the first Fall Nashville run which is called Half Full Races-Nashville on September 25th.  Other races that are in Nashville this Fall are Race 13.1 on Oct. 29 and Nashville Half on November 12.

The runs will be on Sunday mornings starting at 7:00 am from different locations around Nashville.  There will be a weekly email that lays out the details of the run.  There are no specific pace groups, but typically we have every pace from 8-13:00.  There will be hydration at the mid-way point on the runs and at the end.
Contact a-scrivner@comcast.net for more information.  Remember, correspondence will be through email so you will need to contact Alyce if you want to get on that list!
