This is must see video!

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 Iron man 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 (180.2kilometer) bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195kilometer) marathon run along the coast of the Big Island. Father and son went on to complete the race together. View this race at..... click on link below and prepare yourselves!http://www.godtube.com/view_video.php?viewkey=8cf08faca5dd9ea45513

Yes, yes, yes. I love this video. I have heard of this father/son team before... and was so awestruck by what a parent will do for a child. I hope I am that kind of parent too. Thanks for sharing :)
Love,
