Need some inspiration today?

Real Estate Agent with Casa Tierra Realty

A 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' to.

For those who don't know, 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 the Big Island . Father and son went on to complete the race together.

I would normally click past this, but today I decided to watch and am glad that I did.  I can only begin to appreciate the sacrifice.

Chris,

Thanks for the tip.  The link should be active now without having to cut and paste.

Erik,

I had the same initial reaction when I got this from a good friend.  Now, I've watched it half a dozen times.
