    Time To Be Inspired………….

    The Story - A son asked his father, 'Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?' The father who, despite having a heart condition said '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' too. For those who don't know, the Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometers) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometers) bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometers) marathon along the coast of the Big Island . The father and son went on to complete the race together. NOW WATCH THIS VIDEO and view this race:

    Then dry your eyes,

    Anything is possible if we really care and commit to it..if you hyphenate inspire its meaning looks like this "In-Spirit"

    Have a great day…and I trust this video clip gives you the joy it gave me...

    One of the single most inspiring videos i have ever seen. That will stay with me forever and when things get tough i will find that to remind myself how much harder things are for others such as this father and son team.

    Thank you Tony.

    Thank you to all of you for taking the time to look at these video clips - this forum has huge potential which it will fully realise as time slowly passes and the build up of qaulity information begins to form a library.

    Keep training - keep moving forward - and thank you for your interest in my Q&A section
