Incredible relationship between father & son.

Post by Vanilla2 on November 24th 2009, 1:38 pm

TOO HARD? Not for this father.

The Story

A son asked his father, 'Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?'
The father who, despite having a heart condition said '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 kilometers) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometers) bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometers) marathon along the coast of the Big Island. The father and son went on to complete the race together.

that is so sweet, Nilla.
that is the truth!
I know I haven't been so gracious lately
to my charge....
but I am only human
and I too hurt from the pressure...
that's why the video is so sweet
it doesn't show regret.... Tree Hug
