Perspectives of Growing up Indian American in Beaverton

“What type of Indian are you – the dot or the feather?” This question that a patient asked her in graduate school is what stands out in my mind after my interview with Bhavana Reddy. While there isn’t an issue with being genuinely interested in someone’s background, skin color, or religion – or even wanting [...]

Stumptown Cross – Let’s Get Virtual!

Fall is in the air, which usually means a bunch of crazy runners show up to Portland Metro area parks to run across wet grass or soft surface trails in an effort to see how they stack up against the competition.  And for many, it is more about the comradery and team pride.  Whatever it [...]

TRL Member Profile: Edward Liljeholm

We recently caught up with Edward Liljeholm, who is an essential worker, runner, and has been a TRL member since 2017. How long have you been running and why did you start running?

Moving Forward Together

By Torrey Lindbo Like many of you, I find that the events of the past several weeks have had me feeling guilty about all of the trivial things we have been doing as a running club. Posting photos about my run on Instagram… I know that at least a few of you have shared photos [...]

If you aren’t already using Instagram, I’m not going to try to convince you to embrace one more social media platform. But if you are already have an Instagram account and use it for sharing or enjoying photos, Team Red Lizard (@teamredlizard) has a good excuse for you to start posting more frequently – our [...]

Coach’s Corner: Waiting for the Return of “Normal”

By Rick Lovett As I write this, with all 50 states announcing plans to reopen, one of the things that’s most obvious is that almost everyone longs for life to return to normal…possibly with a few improvements, such as greater opportunities to work from home, low gas prices, and no traffic jams on the freeways.
