What My Kid's and I Talk About When We Talk About Running, Part 2

Kate, Emily, Kate's friend Sarah, and I were watching the space shuttle taking off this evening and marveling at how fast it was going - 14,000 miles per hour - when the following conversation took place:

Me: Wow! The space shuttle is going 14,000 miles per hour!

Kate: Wow! Sarah, my mom can run 16 miles!

Sarah: Oh.

Me: But not that fast.

Kate: I wish you did. Then you'd be home in a jiffy.

Once again, aw. Thanks for the comment, they were slow, walking in between, but they were 7 miles! :D
