The sentences below were extracted from The Legend of Geoffrey: "He challenged Charlie the cheetah to a race." "He lost." "He didn’t have awesome running powers." "He challenged Finnegan the flamingo to a standing on-one-leg contest." "He lost again." "He didn’t have special balancing powers." I feel running fast is an ability. Why does the writer use running powers and balancing powers instead of a awesome running power and a special balancing power? Do a power and powers in the context mean different things? Thank you.
