Today is the Banana Relay track meet here at Hamlin. They have been doing this track meet for as long as I can remember. They call it the Banana Relay because our throwers (shot put and discus) do not get to run many (if any) relays so they have the throwers run the relay. At the end of the relay, the last runner on the relay team has to eat a banana so the winning relay team is determined by the first one to cross the line AND finish the banana. Each team usually consists of 2 boys and 2 girls. This year both of my kids will be in it.....Courtney will hand the banana off to Jeremy, who is the last runner and gets to eat the banana! I am excited and am hoping to get a few pictures of it! I'm just hoping that he does NOT choke....literally!
