Route #5

After running The Nasty 2 weeks ago, we have completed our cycle of 12 routes – but we still have a few odd weeks left in the year. So this week we will run one of our most popular – Route #5: Walking Bridge. There will be some great views from the bridge and through downtown of the city all lit up for the holidays. We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm (and 6am). Meet at 5:45pm and join the Lasty Nasties if you are a run/walker and want to get a head start. Please be sure to wear something that creates or reflects light!

PR Bandits Saturday Morning Run – Grassland (Franklin)

December 16, 2016

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

We’re nearing the end of the year so why not finish out running one of our favorites – Grassland! We will be starting from the Grassland Middle School parking lot off of Hillsboro Rd at 7:30am. This may also be the final 60* run we see for a while (rain or shine) so you won’t want to miss out.

This route is an out and back with water located at 3 miles, and a church with bathrooms around 5 miles! Some people may choose to go long and and do the 10 miles before turning back, but the mileage is up to you.

Up to 20mi – http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/710563785

Route #1

We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm (and 6am). Meet at 5:45pm and join the Lasty Nasties if you are a run/walker and want to get a head start. Please be sure to wear something that creates or reflects light! After running The Nasty last week, we have completed our cycle of 12 routes – but we still have a few odd weeks left in the year. So, this week we will run Route #1 because its simple and short and afterwards we invite you to join us at…

Christmas Party 2016

Each year, East Nasty hosts a Christmas gathering to celebrate the past year, and look forward to the new one. This Wednesday night, immediately after finishing the run, everyone is invited down the street to 1306 Woodland (the home of Gretchen and Phil Zimmerman).  We’ll have soup (white chicken chili and a vegan butternut squash), beer (courtesy of Nashville Running Company) and maybe some desserts. We’ll also have some leftover East Nasty gear for sale. All we ask is that you bring $10 (this allows us to renew our insurance and membership with the Road Runners Club of America, and helps offset the cost of the party.) Everyone is welcome, even if you can’t make the run that night or even if you forget your $10. Just join us at the party which will start right after the run. The Zimmermans house is great with lots of places to hang out and chat with each other – just try to keep the hallways clear. Theres plenty of room on the deck, the downstairs club room and the back patio. We will have a couple outdoor heat lamps going. Be sure to say ‘thanks’ to Phil and Gretchen for hosting!

Parking Alert

One thing we want you to be aware of is that there will be a film crew blocking off all of Woodland Street on Wednesday while filming something at Mad Donnas at the corner of 14th & Woodland. Some sort of reality TV show covering the rebranding of the restaurant. Hopefully this won’t inconvenience us too much. Just get to the run as early as you can, find a parking spot in and around 5 Points (Beware of no parking signs, fire hydrants and corners. Don’t be a jerk parker.) or even pay for one in one of the lots, and then just walk down to the party after the run. If we get new details that alter any of that, we will post them here.

ENFL!

 


PR Bandits Saturday Morning Run – Stones River Greenway

December 8, 2016

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

Baby it’s going to be cold outside but we’re still running! This Saturday from the Kohl’s parking lot in Donelson, we will start at 7:30am for an enjoyable out and back greenway run for any distance of your choosing.

Don’t let the cold scare you, it gives you an excuse to stop by Shipley’s Do-Nuts after!

Wednesday December 7th – Baby, It’s Nasty Outside

December 6, 2016

en_mapbanner_route_12

Route #12: The Nasty

This week we culminate our 12 run series with our signature run – Route #12: The Nasty! 6 miles of the worst best hills in East Nashville. You get our famous bumper sticker when you complete the run! If you need a little shorter run, you can run ‘Nasty Lite’ – a 3.7 mile run – but, there’s no sticker reward. We meet at the corner of 11th & Holly at 6pm (and 6am). Meet at 5:30pm and join the Lasty Nasties if you are a run/walker and want to get a head start. We have 12 different routes that we cycle through on Wednesdays, which means that we run each one 4 times per year. (We fill in the gaps with some random runs.) So it works out that we get to experience each route in each season (more or less). So this is the ‘winter’ Nasty – it will be chilly and dark – so be sure to wear something that creates or reflects light! Then throw on a hoodie and come down to 3 Crow Bar to celebrate completing the run with all your peeps!

Christmas Party – Next Week

Don’t forget, our annual Christmas Party is NEXT Wednesday night Dec 14th immediately after the run. Bring $10 and your East Nasty cheer! Because of that, there is no Pint Night this week, but Nashville Running Company will be donating this month’s keg to the party next week. Thanks, NRC! Also, we will have some remaining East Nasty shirts and gear available for purchase at the party.

Thanks, Smith & Lentz!

Big thanks to Smith & Lentz Brewing for hosting the Bluegrass Christmas Tree Lighting event last night. We had a great turnout and raised a couple hundred bucks for the club!
