“I Can Only Imagine” - amazing video of a man carrying his son 226km

This 4-minute video shows the story of Dick Hoyt as he completes a full ironman triathlon (3.8km swim, 180km bike, 42.2km run) with his son, Rick, literally in tow.

Rick was diagnosed with cerebral palsy soon after birth and suffers from severe spastic quadriplegia. His incredible father swims with Rick in a boat then rides with Rick on the front of his bike before pushing Rick in a special chair for a full marathon.  

As I train for my first ironman triathlon I cannot imagine the physical and emotional strength needed to do what Team Hoyt do time and time again. Inspiring.

Like Dick Hoyt, could you push yourself harder to play a bigger game?  Of course you could!  I’m doing it, so can you.
