A simply beautiful story

Well I was sent a video of "Team Hoyt", and in terms of emotional stories this had to be one of the most beautiful. Dick Hoyt competes in Iron Man races with his quadriplegic son. He swims 3.8km followed by cycling 180km and then 42km run all the time towing his son. Completing an Iron Man is hard enough, then to think that Dick Hoyt competed at the age of 54 while carrying his son who has had cerebral palsy from birth.

If you are ever feeling hard done by and need some inspiration, then Dick Hoyt and his Boston University graduate quadriplegic son Rick Hoyt should be more than enough for any one.

When asked what one thing Rick wished he could give his father, his reply was "The thing I'd most like is that my dad would sit in the chair and I would push him once."
