Phone Chats and Slow Races

Today I had the privilege of chatting with my four-year-old cousin in Canada over the phone and I must say, he is quite the conversationalist. He is especially good at coming up with intriguing topics when it's time to go to bed or hang up the phone. The only problem is, he has such good things to talk about that I hardly want to cut him off because it's so interesting.

For instance, today we talked about how his soccer outfit makes him look like a killer whale, reminisced about feeding dolphins and how following the directions will lead to a bite-free day when interacting with animals, discussed how superior halloween is in Florida because your costume isn't limited by coats and cold weather, and finally we came to triathlons. Triathlons are perfect for kids. They love swimming, running and biking. A lot. Why hasn't someone capitalized on this market? Anyway, my four-year-old cousin also informed me that he is really fast and he wants to race his friends. But he would only pick his slow friends to race against. Good idea.

On a slightly related note, I've recently caught the 5K bug and may be moderately addicted to running through theme parks and streets for charity. If only they had the same race requirements as my little cousin. I'd finish in much better standing, I'm sure.
