Lizard Holiday Happenings

I know… an image of Christmas lights pops up before Thanksgiving… but with Thanksgiving just around the corner, and a whole lot of Lizard holiday happenings in early to mid-December, it is time to make sure the following items are on your calendars.

Thursday, November 28 – Thanksgiving run in Tryon Creek State Park. Meet at the Nature Center at 8:30am for some miles of trail running in the park before you indulge in turkey, tofurkey, or whatever it is you plan to be doing on your holiday.

Saturday, December 7 – Girls Gift Exchange. It’s an annual tradition for the Lizard ladies to get together for food and gift exchanging (bring a wrapped gift that is ~$25 value). No boys allowed (they have their own gig at the same time)… sorry, Charlie. Tiffany McClean is hosting at her place from 2-6pm. Her address was in the Gazette, or you can get it on the event page in the TRL members group on Facebook.

Saturday, December 7 – Lizard Lads Holiday Ale Tasting. That’s right boys, you get your own thing to do while the ladies are exchanging gifts. Raghav is hosting this at his place at the same time, 2-6pm. Address is available in Gazette or on the event in the TRL members group on Facebook. Bring a side dish to share, as well as a holiday beer you want to share (or non-alcoholic options as well). This is a fun way to try a whole bunch of the amazing seasonal ales, so pick your favorite (just one, since otherwise there will be a LOT of beer) and plan to do some serious sampling.

Monday, December 16 – Peacock Lane Holiday Run. An annual tradition in a new starting spot. Anna Komer has generously offered up Bridgetown Physical Therapy & Training Studio (1500 SW 1st Ave #150) as a starting location. We will meet up there at 7pm to give everyone a chance to get downtown after work. It’s about a 6 mile round trip run to/from the lights of Peacock Lane. Then stick around for some food and beverages at Pine Street Market after the run.

Tuesday, December 31 – Purge & Splurge. Details are still being worked out, but check the Red Lizard Running Community group on Facebook for details. While this date is a work date for most, the Purge & Splurge tradition is to do an epic run on New Year’s Eve (the purge) before everyone splurges as they ring in the new year.
