"A son said to his father: 'Dad, would you be willingly run a marathon with me?'
The father, despite his age and heart disease, said 'YES'.
And they ran that marathon, together.
The son asked his father again: 'Dad, can you run another marathon with me?' Again the father said 'YES'.
They ran another marathon, together.
One day, the son asked his father: 'Dad would please do the Iron Man with me?'
Now, just in case you don't know, 'The Iron Man' is the toughest triathlon in existence; 4km swimming, then 180 km by bike, and finally another 42 km running, in one stroke. Again the father said 'YES'
Maybe this hasn't 'touched' you by heart yet ... until you watch this video (put on the sound!) ..."
The message ended with a link to a youtube. Little that I know the e-mail was true. What's more, the whole thing really touched me and I am not ashamed to say that I shed tears watching it. Try it yourself ..
