“Why does Éomer call you Wingfoot?” Faramir asked Aragorn soon after a visit from his wife's brother.
“Because of the speed at which Legolas, Gimli and I ran in pursuit of Merry and Pippin when they were captured,” Aragorn explained.
“I wish I could have seen you then,” said Faramir.
“You can, I will race you to yonder oak.”
“But it was years ago when you raced across Rohan!”
“You think I am too old?”
The two men sprinted towards the oak, the older man easily outpacing the younger by a length. Wingfoot still had wings.
