Since my last Blog I have been kept very busy with Track and Field, rowing and of course parkrun.

The weather for the second Southern Athletics League meeting proved to overcast and cool but certainly not as bad as the first one in April.  Since then I have attended the Eastern Young Athletics League meeting, where the weather was glorious and I have also arranged to be at the Eastern AA Championships later in the month.

 Rowing wise, it was the Champion of the Thames RC head of the river for 8's.  Clearly an event being looked at by the colleges as a warm-up for the bumps.

I also took some photos of the "getting on" races...qualification races for the bumps.  The crews may not be the fastest to grace the river but that is more than made up for by the effort they put in.

 The photos I took of the rowing seem to have been well received but I have to say it has resulted in me having to adjust my website.  It became very apparent that photos could be downloaded...something I was told could not happen.  As a direct result, I felt I had no choice but to watermark all of the photos on the website.  Whilst I love taking photos and I'm not looking to make money from photography  (you can tell by the amount I charge for photos), at the end of the day there are costs associated with having a website.  In these days of social media, if anyone who purchases a photo wants a copy of the relevant JPG file, I will be happy to send this to them on request.   

I now come to parkrun.  I attended Milton Country park again on the 28th May and 4th June.  The latter being a special day for Michaela and Mike.  Michaela is very often the volunteer co-ordinator and Mike a run director.  They are well loved by the Cambridge parkrun community and they ran in the event before the actual wedding ceremony later in the day.  Congratulations to them both...

OK, so looking forward to later this month.  Firstly I hope to be on the towpath again for at least some of the May bumps but then I am on holiday.  On my return, I see there are some cycle time trials with Team Cambridge in my village on the 22nd and 29th June.  There are the Eastern AA championships on the 25th and I have a studio session arranged for the 26th.  Unfortunately it doesn't look as though I will be able to get to parkrun until July 2nd.
