Battling the Elements at the 2018 Boston Marathon

By Aaron Coe “Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth” — Mike Tyson It’s 2018, and I finally made it out to my first Boston Marathon. The weather forecast is cool and rainy, which describes Portland much of the year, so I don’t think too much of it. “Overheating is unlikely,” [...]

Summer [Series] Starts in April

Spring has arrived, and that can mean only one thing – it’s time to start planning for summer. Fortunately, TRL has a way of making summer arrive early. That’s right, we simply pick a bunch of Summer Series races that start in the spring… instant summer! So just what is the Summer Series? The simplest [...]

So, I ran a marathon…

I have to begin with a few apologies. The first is for simply talking about a running accomplishment, since I have [almost] always tried to downplay those as to not seem too egotistical. And I say “almost” since I still remember a friend of mine in high school telling me that she enjoyed hanging out [...]

By Rohit Grover After the disappointment of missing entry into Boston 2018 by six seconds I decided I wanted to run another marathon in 2018 since I didn’t have to save my legs for Boston. The Boston Athletic Association notified me on September 27 that my entry was not accepted, and by October 4 I [...]

Also Ran – Part IV

By Rohit Grover Is running marathons necessary? In the time since I’ve started running, I have realized that the distance isn’t as important as the effort — even a 5k race can be a gut-buster if you run it with maximum effort. This wasn’t obvious to me in the beginning, with some fellow runners heaping [...]

Political analysts were impressed with the relatively high voter turnout, even among Millennials The biggest thank you goes to those who are willing to run for a position and help ensure that there is leadership helping ensure that TRL remains [...]

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 [...]
