Self-Talk

Steve: "You know, I can run a 10K in an hour now."
Me: "What's so special about that?"
Steve: "Well, I'm nearly 300 lbs."
Me: "Yeah, I guess that's pretty good for 300lbs."
Steve: "So here's the thing - if I can run a 60-minute 10K at 300lbs, how fast could I run it at 200?"
Me: "Interesting. Want to find out?"
Steve: "Definitely."
Me: "So what are you waiting for?"
Steve: "Better question: what the f is wrong with me that I haven't found out already?"
Me: "Yes, that is a better question."
