3 things: Changes

You may have noticed a few changes around here if you're a regular visitor. After two years of the same design, and as a way to celebrate 5 years of blogging, I worked with Ryan Sullivan to give my site a fresh look. My request to him was to keep it simple: keep it easy to read, easy to share posts with others, easy to navigate, and easy to leave comments.

I also wanted to keep a "green" theme as that has become my go-to color for many things in recent years.

So far, so good.

Since it's Thursday, I thought I'd introduce 3 changes to my blog that you may not have noticed:

1. Email subscription I'm a huge Google Reader fan, but in the past few months I've had a few questions about getting an email subscription. To sign up, simply fill out the box on the top right of the page. Enter your name, email address and click "Subscribe."

You'll get an email to confirm your subscription. Whenever I post, you'll get a link to the latest post. The first post went out before that part was finalized, so I apologize to the few people who had already subscribed for getting a weird email. The one for this post should show up as normal.

2. Upcoming Races page It's as simple as it sounds -- if I've signed up for a race, you'll find it on that page.

3. Blog Archive This is a section I'm still working on as I re-categorize old posts, but this will be a quick and easy way to find older posts.

Thanks to Ryan for some great work on these changes. As far as my blogging goes, don't expect anything major to change.
