Route #9

This week it’s back towards the river for Route #9 – Adelphia/LP/Nissan/Titans Stadium. We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm. Be sure to wear something that creates or reflects light. Nashville Running Company has a lot of good stuff you can pick up. And don’t forget, it’s 2-for-1 at 3 Crow Bar after the run. I bet many of us could use a drink or 2 today.


PR Bandits Saturday Morning Run – Downtown Tour

November 3, 2016

East Nasty is partnering with the ‘PR Bandits’ who are hosting supported long runs on Saturday mornings. This Saturday we will be supplying Nuun thanks to Nashville Running Company!

Good luck to everyone running Indy this weekend!!! Be “Monumental”!

Let’s run Nashville! This route will not take away from enjoying the views and the hills that Nashville offers. We will meet in Lot R of Nissan Stadium at the base of the pedestrian bridge. (With Nashville being the “It City” these days, who knows what we may find when we get there. If we have to go to plan B, we will meet at East Park Recreation Center.)

Wednesday Nov 2nd – Rick is now Roy, but the beer is still cold.

November 1, 2016

Run #8 Rick's Market 2.0

Route #8

This week it’s back towards Shelby for Route #8 – Rick’s Market. We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm (and 6am). Be sure to wear something that creates or reflects light. So much has changed in East Nashville in recent years and this route is no exception. Rick’s is actually home to Roy Meats Service now. So, you can pick up your favorite cut of meat along with the “coldest beer in town”.

Pint Night

Speaking of cold beer… this is the first Wednesday of the month, which means Nashville Running Company is hosting Pint Night. Stop by NRC after the evening run for some Yazoo and 10% off any purchases.

Christmas Party

More details to come, but for now hold the date on Wednesday December 14th. We’ll have our annual Christmas Party that night after the run.

2017 Half (or Full) Marathon Training

Starting in January, the 2017 edition of our Rock n’ Roll Half or Full Marathon training will begin. Right now we are looking for some volunteer pace leaders. Pace leaders train a group to run a specific goal pace for the half marathon, and will finish the training by leading them through the race. Leading a training group is a great way to give back, a lot of fun – and a commitment. As a thank you, we will reimburse you for your race entry fee. We have some leaders already, but we’re still looking for several more volunteers. We need leaders for half marathon goal times from 1:20 through 2:30. Interested? Email our Half Marathon Training Coordinator David Harris at David@eastnastyforlife.com for more specifics.

If you are looking to participate in the training we’ll have a detailed outline plus a place to sign up soon, but here are some specifics if you want to plan ahead.

  1. We meet on Saturday mornings at 8:00am starting the first Saturday in January through race day, April 29th.
  2. Our requirement is that you are able to run 5 miles without stopping by January 1.
  3. We will also offer free speed/hill workouts on Thursday evenings and, of course, our Wednesday night runs.
  4. It’s free. Look for more details in the coming weeks!

PR Bandits Saturday Morning Run – 12 South Loop

October 27, 2016

East Nasty is partnering with the ‘PR Bandits’ who are hosting supported long runs on Saturday mornings. This Saturday we will be supplying Nuun thanks to Nashville Running Company!

For the last time this year, we will do the 12th South run, one of our most popular. Due to this having some challanging roads at the beginning of the run, we will start a 1/2 hour earlier than last week, at 7:30am. Starting and finishing at the Sevier Park Shelter, this run brings you into both Oak Hills and Green Hills, and then down Belmont Blvd and into the city for the longer run. We offer two distance options, and even though it is not an out-and-back, you can modify this run to your liking. The 8 mile run should be perfect for those getting ready for races next week.

We will provide hydration at the start and finish as well as around mile 5.5 (St. Bartholomew’s)

en_mapbanner_route_07

Route #7

This week we run through one of East Nashville’s most eclectic areas: Route #7 – Little Hollywood. The unique spanish architecture makes this area unlike anything else in East Nashville. Read about it’s history and join us for a run this Wednesday. We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm (and 6am). It’s almost Halloween – your costume for Wednesday night should be something lighted and reflective! Lots of turns on this route. For everyones safety, PLEASE always stay on the left and cross the street ONLY AT INTERSECTIONS – never in the middle of the road! 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.

TriggerPoint Foam Rolling Demo and Discount

Before and after the run this Wednesday, stop into Nashville Running Company for a TriggerPoint Clinic with brand representative Ari Perez. (You’ve probably seen Ari running in a hot dog costume or some other crazy outfit in local races!) Learn new foam rolling techniques and also receive 20% OFF your TriggerPoint purchases! Visit TriggerPoint’s Youtube Channel for great video clips of at-home exercises.

Upcoming Highlights

Be on the look out for details coming soon about our 2016 Christmas Party, 2017 Rock n Roll Half/Full Marathon Training (beginning in January), and our 2017 destination race. Stay tuned!

Wednesday Oct 19th – There’s no debating it, Wednesdays are better with East Nasty

October 18, 2016

New Route #6

Route #6

This week’s we had back east into Shelby Park for Route #6 – Riverside. We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm (and 6am). Summer seems to be still holding on just a bit – 80 degree temps forecasted for tomorrow night – so, dress appropriately and be sure to wear your reflective and/or lighted gear. There is often a bit of traffic on this route. This weeks run may be a little warm, but will probably be more fun than watching the debate.

On This Day

Did you know that October 19th is National Seafood Bisque Day? It’s also Evaluate Your Life Day. But, most importantly, its East Nasty Founder Mark Miller’s birthday. So, skip the bisque, remember that you’re winning at life with East Nasty, and come out to the run and toast the Godfather. Happy birthday, Mark! Thanks for all you have done to make East Nasty the great organization that all of us love so much!

Cup Washing Volunteers Still Needed

East Nasty relies entirely on volunteers. And there are many areas where we can always use some help. One of our simplest, but most important needs each week is washing the water cups. Here’s how it works: 1) Take the cups home after the run on Wednesday. 2) Wash them. 3) Bring them back the next week. Easy stuff. Please sign up here. We’re still looking for a  few more volunteers for the rest of this quarter Will you help out?

Volunteer to help wash the cups!
