Lizard Holiday Happenings

December has arrived, and that means there is more stuff going on than you can shake a stick at. While I am not entirely sure how Lizards usually react to a shaking stick, I suspect that in this case they respond by putting these events on their calendar and planning to join for as many [...]

Summer and Fall Member Appreciation Events

For those who haven’t taken advantage of one yet, Team Red Lizard is hosting more member appreciation events in the coming months. As a special add-on to our usually fantastic group runs (and even First Friday), we will be treating members showing up on these specific dates to a beverage. All you need to do [...]

Tour de Goose – July 9, 14, 16, 23, 24

Who’s ready for some of the most unique “races” that exist in the area? The Tour de Goose has been a Lizard tradition for more than a decade, and it seems like each year, David Hatfield is able to find unique new challenges to mix in with some of the classic stages that have been [...]

As a bike commuter, I admittedly like knowing that there are people driving their gas-powered tons of steel who are theoretically going to make every attempt to avoid running [...]

Running in the Snow… No (Snow) Problem

Looks like some winter weather has finally arrived in the Portland metro area.

While there isn’t enough white stuff on the ground to contemplate [...]

Lizards Make a Big Presence at Orcas Island Run

On the weekend of February 5th a large group of Red Lizards headed up to Washington’s San Juan Islands to compete in the Orcas Island 25/50K. In all there were eleven of us – nine in a BIG 5 bedroom house and 2 in a smaller cabin in the funky resort of Doe Bay just [...]

Stub Stewart Trail – Adventures in Mud

For some people, the Coast Range in February is the epitome of mud. But based on a couple weeks of beautiful dry mid-winter weather, who would imagine that trails could still be so muddy? I suppose it doesn’t help matters when clay soils are combined with lots of horse created potholes and then filled with [...]
