TRL’s 2014 Summer Series Lineup Announced

Who’s ready for some summer fun?!? It’s time to pull out your calendar and start blocking off some dates, since TRL has announced their 2014 Summer Series lineup. Don’t know what the Summer Series is? The simple explanation: it is a friendly intra-club competition where we score member against member, depending who turns out for [...]

The Making of a Group Run

People who know me probably know that I ride my bike to work most days. And that bike ride is long enough that 1) I usually can’t get out of the office early enough to make it to any of the amazing evening group runs the club has going on, and 2) I’m so tired [...]

Lizards Rock Shamrock

Portland’s Shamrock Run is without a doubt the biggest running event in this town. With 35,000 people out to participate in one of the race options (5k, 8k or 15k), there is something for everybody, and anybody who runs seems to show up for this one. My two favorite aspects of big races: 1. The [...]

My History as a Lizard

As I was sitting here thinking about the “next big thing” we needed to feature on the home page, I couldn’t decide whether it was talking about some of the upcoming group runs (including some of the winter trail runs, like Silver Falls this weekend or Purge & Splurge on New Years Eve), recapping the [...]

Peacock Lane Run and Potluck

Twas the week before Peacock, and all through the club… it was time for all Lizards to start preparing for fun. The annual Peacock Lane run is only a week away. Every year, this is one of the most popular runs we do. And for good reason. It involves running, seeing some holiday lights to [...]

Club XC Nationals in Bend

For those who didn’t get their fill of cross country during the 2013 Stumptown Cross series, there is one more opportunity to lace up those racing flats. The USATF Club XC Championships are being held in Bend this year (Sat, Dec 14, 2013), so the close-to-home location has many a Lizard thinking about a trip [...]
