My cousin sent me this. Dare you to watch it and not be moved…
A son asked 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 another race together.
One day, the son asked his father, ‘Dad, let’s join the Ironman together.’ To which, his father, as always, said ‘Yes’ too.
For those who don’t know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile marathon along the coast of the Big Island .
Father and son went on to complete the race together. Watch the video toÂ see them both in action…
