How about a little inspiration to start the day?


The son asked his father,
' Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?'.
The father who, despite having a heart condition, says Yes'.
They went on to complete the marathon, together.
Father and son went on to join other marathons, the father always saying
Yes' to his son's request of going through the race together.

One day, the son asked his father,' Dad, let's join the Ironman
together.'
To which, his father said Yes' too.

For those who don't know, the Ironman is the toughest triathlon, ever.
The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86
kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike
ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the
coast of Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. Father and son went on to
complete the race together.

NOW WATCH THIS VIDEO: (make sure your volume is turned on)

They say there's nothing stronger than the bond of love between a parent and a child. What a telling picture of God's view of us.

Dick and Rick Hoyt have completed over 80 Triathlons, including the Hawaii Ironman (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and then a 26.2 mile marathon!) 4 times.

Their best Boston Marathon time is 2 hours 40 minutes (almost 20 minutes faster than Lance Armstrong's time this year, for a little added perspective)

As Rick approaches 70 years old, who knows how much longer this will go on for, but since 1979, they have been competing together, and are truly inspirational

I'm sure you could Ernie, but is your Dad still around to tow, pedal or push you smile
