Stumptown Cross Series Kicks Off Sept 29

As the days get shorter, the morning air gets cooler and dew begins to settle on the grass, the only thing that makes things seem more fall-like is the start of cross country season. For all of you big kids who like to get out there and race across grass, dirt, wood chips, or anything [...]

Summer Sizzler – Sunday, Sept 16

While most of us are not looking forward to summer coming to an end, it does mean there are a few things to look forward to. Cooler days. The start of cross country season. Marathon pacing. But before we get too excited about all of the things fall has to offer, let’s send summer out [...]

TRL’s New Pacing Director – Paul McRae

I am excited to take over the position of Pacing Director for Team Red Lizard. Since I can remember I have been a fan of running. Not just the doing/participating but also watching and just being involved in general. Running has taken me all over the world, has allowed me to meet some incredible people, [...]

Also Ran Part VI

By Rohit Grover As you near race day, remember to visualize the end! The finish line was visible on the trail just past a road bridge. The gravel course had given way to bark chips and I could see some guy with the number “19” on his shirt just ahead of me, but he showed [...]

2018 Tour de Goose: Let Them Run with Cake!

The Tour de Goose, Team Red Lizard’s long-running tribute to the Tour de France (and all things French and fabulous), is swiftly approaching.

Summer Series Strava Segment

TRL’s 2018 edition of the Summer Series is underway, and the racing action has been impressive so far. Not only the competition, but also the number of Lizards out for many of the races in this year’s series. For last year’s series, we added a new kind of “race” to the mix. It is essentially [...]

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 [...]
