Kids Say the Darnedest Things

Well, at least my friend, Greg Whitman, does. You may remember him from such adventures as the Little Red Lighthouse 6 mile swim, the lost car keys at the end of a long hike in the White Mountains, or maybe his interview with us. He left his friends in Concord, NH to study medicine in Australia but he hasn't been far from my heart. Well at least from my head. Thousands of miles does not prevent Greg from heckling from a distance.

Here are some of the better ones:

On Thanksgiving Day 2010[In response to Danny stating that he wanted to get to a 155 pound race weight]: On this day focused around eating, remember one thing: 155. 

Upon losing to Amber on the swim, bike and run portions of Mooseman 70.3:  I thought you were at least a faster runner?

After announcing my retirement from Ironman Tri's: No more ultra marathons. No more Ironmans. What are you not not going to train for now? 

After seeing Amber had won Rock N' Race in a 17:38: I thought you were at least a faster, short-distance runner? 

After seeing Danny's picture in the newspaper after the Rock 'N Race: You do realize shaving your chest won't get you down to 155, right? 
Most recently(and surprisingly not heckling me)[in response to Paul Ryan's claim to have run a sub-3 hour marathon]: When facts and reality don't matter, anything is possible: vote Republican!

Followed up immediately with: I once ran a sub 3 year marathon. 

While it's funny to see Greg's commentary, sometimes it's scary. How can someone forget how fast they ran a marathon? Not just forget, but round down by over an hour?
