TRL Board Elections and Membership Meeting – Wed, Jan 17

In less than a week, TRL will be electing new board officers to lead the club for the next 2 years. While there is only one contested position – 2 members are running for vice president – there are still plenty of other opportunities for members to get involved with the board. Those who think [...]

Also Ran – Part III

By Rohit Grover A marathon before you’re 40 is impressive, but isn’t it more impressive to run one after 40? My experience at the Portland Marathon was so poor, I initially resolved to never run another marathon. However, by the beginning of 2016, that experience was a distant but embarrassing memory, and I was eager [...]

New Years Eve is Time to Purge

2017 is rapidly drawing to a close… and you know what that means. A New Year is about to begin. But before we say goodbye to 2017, it’s time to end the year with a major purge. That should have you all set to celebrate New Years Eve with whatever amount of splurging you feel [...]

Also Ran – Part II

By Rohit Grover Halfway to a marathon, and not 40 yet. The Hop-Hop Half Marathon course is an out-and-back along the levee that separates Portland’s mile-wide Columbia River from the airport. If Shamrock was hilly, this was about as flat as it gets. I think we climbed up and down off the levee, once. The [...]

TRL Board Elections Coming Up

Were you aware that Team Red Lizard has a board of directors? And if you were aware that we have a board, do you know how the members of that board came to be? The current board is actually quite sizable, with 4 officers (President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer), as well as 8 directors [...]

New Balance Sponsorship

Although TRL’s long term relationship with Mizuno recently ended, I’m happy to announce that we now have a new sponsor in New Balance in conjunction with Foot Traffic. This means all members will now get 20% off of all New Balance merchandise at any Foot Traffic location. As an additional bonus, we now have a [...]

Also Ran – Part I

By Rohit Grover My name is Rohit, and I am a runner. I came to running late in life. I am not the fastest runner I know (by far), and will never be as fast as many of the people I run with. The fastest I have come to running a marathon under 2 hours [...]

Stumptown Cross and USATF Championships

It’s hard to believe that the Stumptown Cross season is more than half-way over. But before I make you all sad that the glass is half empty, perhaps it’s time to focus on the fact that the best is yet to come. Two of my favorite races of the season are still on their way [...]

Spooky Pub Run – Wed, Oct 25

Each week at 6pm on Wednesday evenings, Lizards gather at the Buffalo Gap in Johns Landing to run over the Sellwood Bridge and get in some mid-week miles. But once a year, we get crazy, and instead of making a left over the Sellwood Bridge, we turn RIGHT! I know… scary. And this year, on [...]
