Wiseguy Wednesday - Wheelbarrow

Bill sat at the local bar, bragging about his athletic prowess. None of the regulars challenged him, but a visitor pipped up, 
"I'll bet you 50 bucks that I can push something in a wheelbarrow for one block and you can't wheel it back."
Bill looked over at the skinny stranger and decided it wasn't much of a challenge. 
"I'll take you on," he said.
The two men and a number of regulars borrowed a wheelbarrow and took it to the corner. 
"Now, let's see what you're made of," taunted Bill.
"Okay," said the challenger, "Get in."
