This true story was sent to me by a fellow sportmom - enjoy!
The 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.
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. The father did the right thing and he and his son went
on to complete the race together.
