East Nasty is one of the largest running groups in middle Tennessee, and it all got its start about 6 years ago when Mark Miller was training people for the Country Music Marathon. He soon realized that there was enough interest for a year-round group. So in 2008, they began meeting weekly, and East Nasty soon became the home base for run training, community, and hearty competition. And as it grows, Mark continues to maintain his original vision--helping to build a better (run) community.
So it is fitting that Mark Miller is a teacher by profession. He has a natural sense of leadership and a gift of inspiring and encouraging others.
Mark is currently the track coach and calculus/algebra teacher at Christ Presbyterian Academy in Nashville. He's also a runner for life himself. "Running can be addictive, if you can make it through the first three months. You can see yourself change physiologically."
Anyone can run with East Nasty, and you can find them every Wednesday night at 6pm at 11th and Holly Street in East Nashville.
