Wednesday Nov 8 – Stadium Run + Quantify Fitness Offer

November 8, 2017

Route #9

This week is Route #9: Nissan Stadium – home to your first place 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!

Daylight Savings Time has left us once again. Winter is coming. The night is dark and full of terrors – such as cars, cyclists, other pedestrians. Jon Snow may know nothing, but you know that you need to wear something that creates or reflects light on Wednesday evenings. Nashville Running Company is right around the corner from our meeting spot and has several options you can purchase if you’re in need of some gear.

No Pint Night

No Pint Night at NRC this week, but be sure to wish Lee and his crew good luck racing the Pinhoti 100 trail race this weekend. Our own board member Beth Meadows is racing it, too. Crush it, guys!

Instead of Pint Night at NRC, head over to 3 Crow Bar to get some post run rehydration. 3 Crow is a huge capital sponsor and friend of our organization. Be sure to treat (and tip!) the staff there very well – and thank them for hosting us every week for almost 10 years!

Get your beer fix at NRC on Nov 11th with a special event they are hosting to unveil all new gear from Patagonia!

East Nasty is partnering with the ‘PR Bandits’ again in 2017 who are hosting supported long runs on Saturday mornings.

This Saturday, we’l start from the Percy Warner Golf Course Clubhouse at 7am. We head down Belle Meade Blvd and then cut across Tyne Blvd towards Radnor Lake. Turn back at the Radnor Welcome Center for an easy 10mi or go all the way to the other side of the lake for 12mi.

Wednesday Oct 25 – “Hollywood, you look good…”

October 25, 2017

Route #7

This week we run Route #7: Little Hollywood. Lots of turns on this route. For everyones safety, PLEASE always stay on the left and cross the street ONLY AT INTERSECTIONS. Don’t be a maverick and run in the middle of the road or cross the road before you get to an intersection! Note: when you are running on Eastland, stay on the far left and stay single file over the bridge. Once you cross the gully, there will be a bike lane and then a sidewalk. The dog days of summer look to be behind us and it should be a nice crisp fall evening for a run!

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.

Why We Start in Pace Groups

The primary reason we leave in pace groups is the gaps it creates between groups of runners. This helps with traffic flow at intersections and crossings – allowing cars and others to get through between our pace groups. We don’t want to be a parade! So, listen up for the your pace and start with that group, or wait for the next one. Please don’t start in between groups on your own. Our pace groups start at sub 8-min per mile and go in 30 second increments all the way to plus 10-min per mile.

Lighted and Reflective Gear

Just a reminder that you need to wear something that creates or reflects light on Wednesday evenings. Nashville Running Company is right around the corner from our meeting spot and has several options you can purchase if you’re in need of some gear.

Wednesday Oct 18 – Finally Fall

October 18, 2017

Route #6

This week is Route #6: Riverside. 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.

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. Be sure to wear your lighted and reflective gear. You’ll need it in the park.
