Awesome Video!

A son asked his father, 'Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?' The father, 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' too.

For those who don'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 (180.2kilometer) 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.


  1. Brenda, that is such an amazing video. It just made me cry. That father reminds me of our Father... how could we accomplish anything in this life without Him? I can't even say how amazing this video is... thanks for sharing!

  2. Honestly amazing! I can't even imagine running a marathon by myself, let alone pushing someone. And to do the ironman. Wow. What and amazing dad!

  3. Brenda,

    Thanks for sharing that video. It reminds me of all that we have and for all Heavenly Father and the Savior have done for us.

  4. Way to make me cry, LOVED IT! That is now one of my favorite scriptures.
