Default Amazing

Just got this email...and it was incredible to watch this.

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.

NOW WATCH THIS VIDEO and view this race:

Then dry your eyes...
