Amazing Ironman Story

A son asked his father, ‘Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?’  The father, despite having a heart condition, says ‘Yes’.  They went on to complete the marathon together.

The 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 once again said ‘Yes.’

For those who may not 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 of Hawaii.  This would be challenging for most people but add on the other obstacles the pair faces you see where they draw their strength from. Father and son went on to complete the race together.

    i think you have to mention something in your blog of the (without giving it away) “challenge” this was or how inspiring it is, so others want to watch it too.
