Amazing Story....

By
Real Estate Agent with Groome & Co. REALTORS

A friend of mine sent me this forwarded email and I wanted to repost it here because it meant a lot to me when I read it this morning.  I don't usually even read all the "forwards" I get, but for some reason felt compelled to open this one.  There is a link to the short video clip at the bottom and I invite you all to watch it.  What an incredible show of love, faith and committment.  How much better would this world be if we all aspired to such greatness and strength of character?

 

 

 

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'


For those who didn'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

Father and son went on to complete the race together. View this here:
