Ready, Set, Go......
Yesterday was the Regional Track and Field meet for the public schools. Joel qualified at his school to compete in the relay race and for long jump. It was kind of a crappy day today, wet and windy, but they continued on throughout the day. Luckily for me....maybe not so lucky for Joel....his events did not start until 3:00 pm. I get home from work at that time, so I was able to watch both of his events.
We watched his long jump event, and he jumped well, but he did not qualify to move on to the big track and field meet.
Then they ran their relay race. Joel was third in the leg, he got the baton from Thomas....then he ran and handed it off to Mike.....and they came in SECOND!!!!!! So they all got silver medals. He gets to go to the big meet in London, (not sure when that is....next couple of weeks I would assume) He was pretty excited, as were we!!!
Here he is with his medal.
