I would like to start this blog with a little rant about my bt internet! I had planned on blogging more regularly, but having recently moved house and finding out that my maximum internet speed was 0.27mb (it has taken many phone calls, some lasting over an hour, for them to finally admit that this is all I'm likely to get), I'm finding that doing anything on the internet is turned into a massive chore as it takes about a minute for a page to load. This is actually the second time I've typed this post (or variation of), but after clicking the save button and closing the page, I later found out that I hadn't allowed my browser the necessary minute or so to actually complete the task.
Anyway...It was my birthday on the 1st of September, so my plan was to keep my diary free for that day. My plan was all going to, er, plan until I received a phone call a couple of days beforehand asking if I could drive down to St Albans to photograph Steve Cram at a couple of events. It wasn't a difficult decision; I'll have another birthday next year and, at my age, I don't mind missing a few!
It was fascinating to hear Steve talking about achieving the best from yourself and giving a bit of insight into the mind of a successful sportsperson. I'm no runner, but still found the talks motivating and full of positive energy.
