May Day is known for pinko commies marching in the streets. But I was too lazy for a walk today, so I blogged instead. Today marks a new life for an old site. I launched the Masters Track & Field Home Page on AOL in February 1996. With Dave Clingan, I started masterstrack.com in 1999. Now this. Why this? It’s a long story, but I’m looking for a better platform for advertising. Stay tuned for that. Also excuse any format issues or technical hiccups as I sort out settings and customize this sucker. (I’m using a WordPress theme called MH NewsDesk.) I’m thinking of creative ways to lighten my load while I get into heavy topics here. I’ll be formally inviting y’all to submit guest columns. I’ll do polls. I’ll try my hand at photo galleries (replacing one on mcom that kind of crashed.) But don’t worry about the old site. It’ll never go away. So thanks for bookmarking this site (CNTRL-D in your favorite browser). I hope to rock you.
