A True Ironman

Just been sent this link - Don't know if it has been posted before, but even if it has it's worth another viewing.

Quick intro to the video first

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' too.

Now watch the Video

    Crying like a baby here.....

    ....this guy is amazing....there is nothing i can say that will do him and his son any justice.....

    .....isn't it funny how we think about stuff from our point of view, only to have it all put in real perspective from watching something like this...

    Nice one.

    Don't want to get into the religious angle on a tri website, suffice to say those guys are amazing.
