Not going down without a fight

We are closing in on a month before TTTTD (The Turkey Trot Throw Down).

At dinner, Googs announced that he will now start training for this EPIC EVENT.

I cringe at the thought. I'm pretty much toast if he trains.

That's when he turned to me and asked, "What are you going to do if I beat you again."

I gave him that confused dog look and responded: I'll just train harder for next year. 

He says: But I would have beat you twice. What if I beat you by MORE this year.

I said: You might win. You might beat me by a large margin. But, you might not. I believe that I CAN win. And that little sliver of hope is why I'm not going to give up. That little sliver of hope is why no matter how many times you beat me, I'm going to keep training harder and keep coming back.

Googs chews on this for a minute. 

Then I continued: Besides, one of these days you're going to come back from college all fat and stuff.

That's what I'm really waiting for.
