A Lizard on Lobster in Boston

By Adam DiVergilio A visit to Boston isn’t complete without a meal or three featuring lobster. Despite the fact that lobster was once a food relegated to prisoners and the less-fortunate, today it is a treasured seafood dish and regional specialty of New England. The question floating around this lizard’s brain on a recent cross-country [...]

Meet TRL’s Pacing Director – Beth Carter

So, who remembers that Cake song “The Distance”?: “[S]He’s going the distance, [s]he’s going for speed She’s all alone, all alone in her time of need Because [s]he’s racing and pacing and plotting the course” Ok, so the songwriter probably didn’t have marathon pacing in mind, but I can’t help think that this is a [...]

Summer Series is Under Way!

For those of you who noticed April being warmer than usual, I am afraid that Team Red Lizard is partly to blame for this aspect of climate change. Picking April races to start the Summer Series… how can the weather help but respond? With the first 3 races of the Summer Series being crammed into [...]

Input Needed on 2016 Summer Series

Summer is still a ways off, but the time to start planning your summer running has arrived. One long-running tradition (ok, shorter-running as well, if you want to go with the pun) for the Lizards is the Summer Series. For the past dozen years or so, the club has selected a range of races in [...]

TRL Board Election Results

For those who haven’t already heard the outcome of the TRL board elections, as of Wednesday, January 20, 2014, we now have 4 new officers in place. While there was only one contested race for the 4 officer positions that TRL members were deciding on, there were still 100 votes cast. That isn’t bad for [...]

TRL History Lesson at Election Time

I originally wrote the following 6 years ago when I was “moving on” after 4 years as president of this fine organization.
