Site Updates & Changes

Some minor cosmetic changes

This week I have been doing a bit of house keeping on my personal site. My Stocksbridge Park Steels section was getting bigger and bigger. I decided it need to have a site of it’s own (currently in process of doing that). Once I made decision to remove the football section. I also looked at the stats and the LEGO news wasn’t gaining much traffic, so after some deliberation I decided to remove that as well. Thus making this site purely about my own running exploits, general running news and reviews. So please be aware old links to either football or LEGO related articles no longer work. You will get a 404 error. I have gone through most of my social sites to remove dead links but still got my Facebook page to check.

I aim to make more knowledge base articles over coming weeks and also more reviews. I have cleaned up and condensed the home page, giving it a sleaker look, updated the site header logo. I’ve added my affiliation to my masters club and my coach. The menu has a new layout and also added a kit gallery. I aim to make graphics of all my previous vests for historical reference at some point as well.

Behind the scenes I’m running the latest version of wordpress and I spent a few hours cleaning up the database to remove old plugins etc to hopefully help with the load speed of the site. Please let me know if you encounter any issues or have any improvement suggestions.
