I spend a lot of time running (and riding) around the place.
Sometimes close to home, sometimes afar.
I come across a LOT of monuments, plaques, memorials and other places of interest. Depending on how focused I am on my training, I often stop and take a look.
Some might say I'm an Accidental Historian. (Some might say I need to harden up and train harder.)
Whichever camp you're in, I've created a collection of my posts about being The Accidental Historian for your reading pleasure. Enjoy.
