My Blogs

I have two blogs.

Blog from a Faster Master has been running for several years now. It is mostly concerned with what it’s like to be a Masters athlete. I aim to update it every month. At least, that’s the plan.

I re-discovered my blogs from 2007 to the beginning of 2010 after they had "gone missing" in cyberspace for several years. Finding them was a little like uncovering a time capsule. They all date from before depression became a feature of my life, and the last few, in 2009 and 2010, are really me putting a brave face on things. I’ve tidied thse up a bit, as several had dead links in them to material I can’t find any more.

They are here:

2007 - Blogs about the European Masters Indoor Championships and World Masters Championships are included.

2008 - Blogs here include my recollections of the World Masters Indoor Championships, the European Masters Championships and the European Masters Games.

2009 - My build to, and the aftermath of, the World Masters Championships, and recollections of the European Masters Indoors

2010 - My final blog before moving over to the Wordpress blogging site.

My latest blogs in this series (January 2010 onwards) are here: Click to read (This will take you to a separate, but completely reputable website)

In January 2013 I began a new blog, entitled A Blog on a Landscape As the title suggests, this is an opportunity to write about some of my landscape photography. I use the blog to tell the story behind a photograph from my collection. When I can remember to post something, I have great fun with this.

In addition to these two blogs, I also running a web site called
The Great Dolomite Road. This tells the story of the road which crosses the Italian Dolomites, linking the towns of Cortina d’Ampezzo and Bolzano. I have based the site on a book of photographs taken in the very early part of the 20th Century to celebrate the opening of the Road. I have visited the area many times, and have used photographs of my own taken to compare with the early photos. This is a project that is, save for a few omissions I have yet to tackle, more or less complete. However, it is a very rewarding project which constantly throws up surprises.
