Proof that anything is possible - Team Hoyt

My friend Brendan raced the TimberMan 70.3 triathlon this past weekend in New Hampshire. When he got back to Maryland I expected to hear stories, as I usually do, of getting kicked in the face during the swim, hellish hill climbs on the bike, hitting the wall on the run and, of course, scantily clad triathlete chicks. But Brendan came back with a different story this time. This past weekend he had the privelege of seeing Team Hoyt in action.

"Team who?" That was my response, so he showed me the video below. Take 10 minutes and watch it. It is hands down the most inspirational story I have ever heard.

Rick and Dick Hoyt, my hat's off to you. Absolutely, positively, most definitely without a doubt incredible stuff right there. Bravo to you two.

Yeah, I saw them too. It was incredible. Everyone was cheerling them on.

That video is the only thing in the world that makes Brendan tear up and when I say tear up I mean weep : )Aww.

Wow, I don't even have words after seeing that, I'm literally speechless. Nothing I could write would describe the magnitude of this family's achievements.
Go Team Hoyt!


Maybe i'll be lucky enough to be in a same race as them...
