OK if you can make it through this video without the fugly cry, you are in need of serious therapy! It KILLED me!! What a precious memory & experience for a father and a son..and the parallels between the story & us and our Savior are beyond vivid. Enjoy!

Here is the story, first:

"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 .

The father and son completed the Iron Man and the link below shows a video. It's amazing."
