Indescribable Love From Father to Son


0

Dick Hoyt, father to a disabled son, Rick said yes to his request to take part in a marathon together despite having a heart condition himself.

In the spring of 1977, Rick Hoyt told his father that he wanted to participate in a 5-mile benefit run for a Lacrosse player who had been paralyzed in an accident. Far from being a long distance runner and having a heart condition, he said yes to this request that sounds too far to reach. He pushed him in his wheelchair, and they finished all 5 miles, coming in next to last.

Lord knows that this’s just the beginning of 1000 races that including marathons, duathlons and triathlons and six of them are being Ironman competition. It all began after the first 5 miles benefit run when Rick said to him that he doesn’t feel like handicapped when he is running. It pushes Dick to his physical limit.
