I was at Caldecote cross country festival on the opening day of the month. It was quite well supported for a very hot day and I hope that it is an event that will continue for many years. Below is the winner of the 10k.
On the following Wednesday (4th) I went to Wilberforce Road in Cambridge for an evening track and field meet (Eastern Masters League). There was a very friendly rivalry between a good number of teams and the closest finish was the relay for women (4 x 200m).
I then had three days in the heat at Silverstone for the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Unfortunately I was not an official photographer but never the less still managed to get some quite good images.
The following weekend all my plans fell apart. The Motorcross didnt happen and whilst I went over to a friends yard for some horse photos, I took no photos able to be shared here. On the 19th I fitted in a short gym photo shoot with the trainer that helped me do my initial Ironman training...was it really 10 years ago that she first introduced me to a treadmill?
Then on the 21st I was back at Silverstone for the classic meet. As you can see I wanted to experiment with a little zoom blur... However I also managed to get on the pit lane.
On the 25th I went to the final local Team Cambridge Cycling Club time trial of the year...the year is passing so quickly!
My final sporting event for the month was the women's world cup hockey tournament. I managed to secure a couple of tickets for the last England group game against Ireland which England won 1-0.
Looking forward, August is a much quieter month. I have another trip to Wilberforce Road in Cambridge planned for a Southern Athletics League fixture on the 18th and I may well go along to a Cambridge parkrun at some point. I may be back at Silverstone for the MotoGP and I cannot forget that football will be starting again. Whilst August could well be fairly quiet, September is certainly not. I have athletics in Bury St Edmunds on he 8th, grass track racing on the 9th, Silverstone again on the 15th and a pony club hunter trial on the 16th. Gransden Show on the 29th will round off the month where I shall again be doing all three horse rings.
