200 Half Marathons Run! by Gregg LeBlanc

As 2020 got underway, I was at 190 Half Marathons tracking to achieve my 200th by April. Running a few in early 2020, I got to 196 by Mid-March. We all know what happened next. Covid shut things down for the rest of 2020 and into 2021. Once in-person events resumed in the Spring of [...]

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.

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.  [...]

TRL 2020 Annual Report

As we start approaching a full year of being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Team Red Lizard board felt it was important to provide an annual report to our members with an update on how the club is doing.  We decided to present this in a newsletter format, but with all of the figures [...]

“Giving Back” Donations for High School Runners

A big thank you to everyone who already contributed running shoes and apparel for us to donate to local high school athletes. With their compressed cross country season set to kick off at the end of February, we are going to make one last push to collect items before getting them to the coaches from [...]
