Gardening Olympics are in the final stretch and making a run for the gold

The entries are coming in fast and furious for the Gardening Olympics. Approximately 11 hours and 4 minutes left.

This old song is running through my head:
Now the race is on
and here comes pride in the backstretch
Heartaches goin’ to the inside
My tears are holdin’ back
They’re tryin’ not to fall
My hearts out of the runnin’
True love’s scratched for another’s sake
The race is on and it looks like heartaches
and the winner loses all!
