Forest of Needwood 5 Miler Race Report by Hank

I opted not to run this year - again. A good run during this race eludes me every time so I will be content to volunteer and cheer for everyone else!
Hank decided at the last minute that he wanted to run it. He's young, strong and healthy so I figured why not?
Here's his race report:
The race is a hard one, very tricky because of the hills, but I wanted to run it anyway.

The weather was cold, but it wasn't raining like everyone thought it would be. Mom made me wear a hat and gloves, and I got hot so I took them off towards the end.

The last big hill was the hardest. It's huge and it didn't feel like it would end, but I kept going.

Most of the grownups out there were really fast, but I was the youngest kid there so I got a medal for that.

I did my best and I had a lot of fun. I think my next race will be the Race for the Birds. It's a trail run which is cool even though I like roads better right now.
