September 2016 (2)
The weekend of 10th and 11th September was full of photography. Saturday was an "all day" shoot in Burwell for Aiki Extended...a fascinating insight into all things Aikido. People had come to the 3 day gathering from all over the world to learn and practice.
On Sunday I was at the first Hardwick play parks fun run. Being in my home village I was pleased that it turned into a really nice family event. It was run over fields but the day was blessed with good weather after the previous days rain which probably did just enough to soften the ground...perhaps ideal conditions. Anyway, the event went well and it seems that it may well turn into an annual event. Obviously I would like to see the event succeed in raising funds so I am donating all profits from photo sales to the cause.
The weekend of the 17th and 18th was all about parkrun. It was good to be back at Cambridge on Saturday after a few weeks away doing other things and being on holiday. Some of the "regulars" were absent but there are so many running events going on locally at the moment, that is hardly surprising. Since I last took photographs there, dogs have been banned...shame as I used to enjoy seeing them but understandable as there are so many runners there now each Saturday and safety must be considered. Chris, pictured below had returned from a good "Great North Run" and once more came home ahead of the rest.
Sunday was the turn of Wimpole juniors and there was a bumper turnout.
Looking forward, I may consider going to Gransden show on the 24th...if only to see if they get larger numbers of horses attending than Ashwell a few weeks ago. This was another regular on my calendar when my son was riding so it will be interesting to see how this has changed over the years. Then we are into October. On the 1st I have pencilled in a trip to Kessingland on the east coast for a tug of war festival although I would like to spend a little time on the coast too. On the 9th there is a half marathon and a 10 mile race at Wimpole. Since I have not been asked to attend, I may or may not go to this. I may instead make the 8th and 9th my next parkrun weekend with Cambridge on the Saturday and Wimpole juniors on the Sunday. At the end of the month I am off to Wales for a few days as I have tickets for the Wales rally GB.
