Fun at Kestrel’s Fifth Annual 5k on the Hadley Green

runners with sign 4What an incredible day for Kestrel’s 5k!  Beautiful sunshine, crisp fall air, cool temperatures for the runners and walkers.  What a day!  Congrats to all the participants and their supporters, as well as to all the sponsors.  A special shout out to all the Kestrel Staff and Volunteers who made the day so great.  Ice cream from Cooks Farm, apple turnovers from Backyard Bakery, and just a nip of wine from Mount Warner Vineyards… it couldn’t get any better!
Here’s a video I put together.  The wonderful music is from the Ephemeral Stringband:

About John Body

I live in Western Massachusetts, in the incredibly beautiful Connecticut River Valley. I've been hiking, kayaking, and tracking wildlife throughout the Valley with lots of photos and videos that people may like to see. Whenever I travel I also take my cameras just in case I see great scenery or wildlife. My passion is wildlife conservation so I try to attend wildlife workshops and land preservation events (Habitat, Habitat, Habitat!). When I get a chance, I videotape the experts, they're just so knowledgeable and inspiring. I hope you enjoy my posts.
