PHOTOS: A day in the life of a Special Olympics athlete

The 10-year-old athlete participated in the Special Olympics Maryland summer games for the third time this year, winning his first race.

Quiet and shy at first, young Hawkins talked about nerves before a race, love of running fast and expressed an interest in fire trucks.
