Well – as you may have realized from my tweets and my post from last night – my blog had a meltdown last night. There was an error in my theme and that prevented me from even logging into my site. I use a template theme from ThemeForest, which I alter to fit my liking. The way I fixed the issue was to go into my c-panel and just delete the theme. My blog went blank, but at least I was able to log in and quickly switch my blog to one of the free templates available on WordPress. I am still using a free theme, and it isn’t that bad – but I still am not 100% satisfied with the layout. I tend to like a boxed layout with a right sidebar. My knowledge of CSS and that sort of thing isn’t the greatest either. But I will keep looking for a template that I like.
Do any of you even look at my blog without the use of Feedly, Bloglovin or email?
I read all my blogs via feedly, so unless I comment, I don’t really see what people’s blogs look like. I like simply blogs, and no pop-ups. I might not even purchase a new template. Who knows 🙂
For those who follow the Ottawa Race Weekend twitter/facebook pages – the Half Marathon is officially sold out! The 10K is the next race that looks like it well sell-out. If you are interested in Ottawa Race Weekend – the time is now to register. The race will most likely be entirely sold out by mid-January. Usually once the half marathon sells out, the rest soon follow. I am registering for the 10K! Hope to see some of you there!
In other Ottawa Race News – the Sporting Life 10K is making it to Ottawa for the first time. The race has been happening in Toronto for over 10 years, but now will have an Ottawa location. The race is scheduled for Mother’s Day 2015 and could be a nice replacement for the former “Mother’s Day Race” that used to be run by Somersault Events. If you register early, there are gift cards from Sporting Life and Saucony to be put in your swag bags. The race is only $45 which is a steal for a 10K. Nice! The race is a fundraiser for CHEO and if you register and fundraise $100, you will have a race fee refund! I will most likely be registering for this race as well.
One last Ottawa Race news bit – The Army Run will be held on Sept. 27th and registration will open on Feb. 4th. They are even increasing the size of the races for 2015. That 5K will be crowded!
What races are you looking forward to for 2015?
