Lizard Holiday Happenings

December has arrived, and that means the busy holiday season is about to get underway. If you are looking to get your calendar rounded out with holiday festivities, the weekend of December 15-17 is going to be a busy one in the Lizard kingdom.

Friday, December 15 – Peacock Lane Run and Potluck. Join us for a run to the lights of Peacock Lane. We will meet at the downtown Foot Traffic location – NOTE THE NEW LOCATION – at 6pm. It will be about 6 mile total to run to/from the store to the lights. Then we will hang out at the store for food and drink. It’s a potluck, so go to this thread on the message board to post what you plan to bring, or for all the details on the run, meeting location, etc.

Saturday, December 16 – Great Train Chase. Feel like chasing trains around town? This fun-filled run put together by the mastermind of David Hatfield will have you running a ~10-mile loop around the city that follows street cars, MAX trains, and of course, the steam-powered Holiday Express locomotive. Plan is to meet at the Holiday Express (down by Oaks Bottom) for a 4pm departure time (so get there a little early). The group will be heading over to Laurelwood Public House after the run to grab food and beverages. All of the details are posted in this thread on the message board, so get the details there and post if you plan to join.

Sunday, December 17 – Girls Gift Exchange. This beloved holiday tradition for the Lizard ladies has been going on for some time. While I haven’t attended myself, the photos and reports lead me to believe this is an event you girls should attend if you are in town. Potluck food, drinks, and a white elephant style gift exchange ($20 value gifts). Event is being hosted at Bhavana’s house and starts at 1pm. For address and details, check out this thread on the message board. And if you are a member without access to that thread in the member’s only forum, contact me and we will get you set up (torrey@redlizardrunning.com)

Sunday, December 17 – Lizard Lads Holiday Ale Tasting. Yes, this is at the exact same time as the Girls Gift Exchange – 1pm. But at a different location – this will take place at Torrey’s house. The address and details are posted in this thread on the message board, but the concept is pretty simple – bring your favorite holiday/seasonal brew. We will sample them and see which one everyone likes best. Dudes, food and beer – the formula for a fun Sunday afternoon.

There you have it – a busy weekend of holiday events for all the good boys and girls of Team Red Lizard. If you don’t yet have the holiday spirit, I’m pretty sure you will be full of it by the time you make it to Monday, December 18.

See you out there for one or all of these fun-filled events!
