Forest Park Conservancy work party. Do it.

It’s February in Forest Park. As I run the trails my feet dance over giant puddles, slide sideways and hurdle fallen branches and sticks. I am occasionally forced to a complete stop in an attempt to scout out a navigable path that will not result in a shoe sucked off my foot by the mud.  [...]

Running in the Snow… No (Snow) Problem

Looks like some winter weather has finally arrived in the Portland metro area. The question is, do you decide to stay indoors and skip the run, or does the snow motivate you to get out there and enjoy a unique (for us) running adventure? While there isn’t enough white stuff on the ground to contemplate [...]

Sunday NW Starbucks Run

If you’re looking for a challenge on a Sunday morning, you may want to consider joining the group that runs out of the Starbucks on NW 23rd & Overton.  Not an official Red Lizard group run, this one has a faithful following of regulars, led by Tim Swietlik.  The core is a group made up [...]

TRL’s Annual Racing Series Kicks Off With Shamrock Run

I hope everyone has had a great winter and has been dutifully building their base mileage because winter is almost over and that means the racing season is just around the corner. This year TRL will be spreading out the races from spring through fall and will include most of the local favorites that you [...]

The race is the brainchild of TRL’s sleepless superstar, Brian Hansen. In addition to doing a lot for the running club, Brian directs this race [...]

Shamrock Run Team Registration Discount

While many of you have been toeing the line for some of the early season races, Portland’s unofficial spring racing season kicks off in mid-March with the Shamrock Run. If you don’t already have March 13th on your calendar, you still have time to prepare yourself for either the 5k, 8k or 15k options. And [...]

Lizards Make a Big Presence at Orcas Island Run

On the weekend of February 5th a large group of Red Lizards headed up to Washington’s San Juan Islands to compete in the Orcas Island 25/50K. In all there were eleven of us – nine in a BIG 5 bedroom house and 2 in a smaller cabin in the funky resort of Doe Bay just [...]

Something Looks Different Here…

We tried to warn you that change was coming. The Red Lizard Gazette should have arrived in all member’s mailboxes; if you read it before visiting the web site, you knew you could expect something different. How different is the revamped web site? I guess you’ll have to take a look around and figure it [...]

Stub Stewart Trail – Adventures in Mud

For some people, the Coast Range in February is the epitome of mud. But based on a couple weeks of beautiful dry mid-winter weather, who would imagine that trails could still be so muddy? I suppose it doesn’t help matters when clay soils are combined with lots of horse created potholes and then filled with [...]
