2022 Summer Series

Spring is in the air, and summer is just around the corner – you know what that means… Summer Series time! For those not in the loop on what the Summer Series is, it is a selection of races that we encourage club members to join. The goal is to have a solid Lizard presence [...]

Board Candidate Statements

Every 2 years, Team Red Lizard has an election for the 4 officer positions on the board – President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.  For the March 2022 elections, we have candidates willing to run for each of those positions.  The following are the statements they submitted for members to consider before casting their ballots.

The TRL Board Needs You!

Being on a “board” – if you have ever thought that sounded important, well, it is. But being on the TRL board doesn’t require you to have special training or credentials; it simply requires that you enjoy running and being a part of the Lizard community. With board elections coming up over the next month, [...]

The Race that Wouldn’t End

By Rick Lovett My buddy and I called it the Twilight Zone Run. Not because it was run in the evening, but because it felt like an episode of the classic fantasy/science fiction TV show. Officially, it was the 1984 Rutabaga Run. It began beneath the steeple of a postcard-perfect church in small-town Wisconsin, descended [...]

A TRL pandemic marathon story

By Janne Heinonen and Chelsea Warren In late April, we ran the Virtual Eugene Marathon on Sauvie Island.

In-person 2021 XC Season?!?

While we aren’t yet out of the COVID woods, the current roll out of vaccinations is a cause for optimism that we might be able to enjoy some “normal” things by the time we get into mid-2021.  In case there is some reality to that optimism, plans are in motion to hold an in-person Stumptown [...]

Presidents Corner

By Angela Lindbo Running means different things to different people.  For me, I love my body’s ability to simply cover ground, getting out in nature and the sense of accomplishment this brings.  Running really is a celebration of life, as well as an extension of health.  This celebration is often best when shared with others.  [...]

Member Profile – Corinna Jackson

Despite the pandemic and absence of in-person races, some runners have been able to push themselves to new PRs in virtual events over the past year.  Our latest member profile features Corrina Jackson, who ran a lifetime best 10k time a few months back.  Nice work, Corrina! 1.  How long have you been running, how [...]
