Dick Hoyt My Hero

Mark told me about this video yesterday, so I searched for it on youtube. I cried, I think you will too.

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 fater, "Dad, let's join the Ironman together."To which, his father said "Yes".

For those who don't know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever.

Watch.



Dick Hoyt is 66 years old! I love my dad a LOT... but this guy gets title of SuperDad.

Don't you agree?

Next time you think your life it tough... think again.
