Tu jest cala historia:

>Eighty-five times he's pushed his disabled son, Rick, 26.2 miles in
>marathons. Eight times he's not only pushed him 26.2 miles in a
>wheelchair but also towed him 2.4 miles in a dinghy while swimming and
>pedaled him 112 miles in a seat on the handlebars--all in the same day.
>
>
>Dick's also pulled him cross-country skiing, taken him on his back
>mountain climbing and once hauled him across the U.S. on a bike. Makes
>taking your son bowling look a little lame, right?
>
>
>And what has Rick done for his father? Not much--except save his life.
>
>This love story began in Winchester, Mass., 43 years ago, when Rick was
>strangled by the umbilical cord during birth, leaving him brain-damaged
>and unable to control his limbs.
>
>
>"He'll be a vegetable the rest of his life;'' Dick says doctors told him
>and his wife, Judy, when Rick was nine months old. ``Put him in an
>institution.''
>
>
>But the Hoyts weren't buying it. They noticed the way Rick's eyes
>followed them around the room. When Rick was 11 they took him to the
>engineering department at Tufts University and asked if there was
>anything to help the boy communicate. ``No way,'' Dick says he was told.
>``There's nothing going on in his brain.''
>
>
>"Tell him a joke,'' Dick countered. They did. Rick laughed. Turns out a
>lot was going on in his brain. Rigged up with a computer that allowed
>him to control the cursor by touching a switch with the side of his
>head, Rick was finally able to communicate. First words? ``Go Bruins!''
>And after a high school classmate was paralyzed in an accident and the
>school organized a charity run for him, Rick pecked out, ``Dad, I want
>to do that.''
>
>
>Yeah, right. How was Dick, a self-described "porker'' who never ran
>more than a mile at a time, going to push his son five miles? Still, he
>tried.
>``Then it was me who was handicapped,'' Dick says. ``I was sore for two
>weeks.''
>
>
>That day changed Rick's life. "Dad,'' he typed, "when we were running,
>it felt like I wasn't disabled anymore!''
>
>
>And that sentence changed Dick's life. He became obsessed with giving
>Rick that feeling as often as he could. He got into such hard-belly
>shape that he and Rick were ready to try the 1979 Boston Marathon.
>
>
>"No way,'' Dick was told by a race official. The Hoyts weren't quite a
>single runner, and they weren't quite a wheelchair competitor. For a few
>years Dick and Rick just joined the massive field and ran anyway, then
>they found a way to get into the race officially: In 1983 they ran
>another marathon so fast they made the qualifying time for Boston the
>following year.
>
>
>Then somebody said, ``Hey, Dick, why not a triathlon?''
>
>
>How's a guy who never learned to swim and hadn't ridden a bike since he
>was six going to haul his 110-pound kid through a triathlon? Still, Dick
>tried.
>
>
>Now they've done 212 triathlons, including four grueling 15-hour
>Ironmans in Hawaii . It must be a buzzkill to be a 25-year-old stud
>getting passed by an old guy towing a grown man in a dinghy, don't you
>think?
>
>
>Hey, Dick, why not see how you'd do on your own? "No way,'' he says.
>Dick does it purely for ``the awesome feeling'' he gets seeing Rick with
>a cantaloupe smile as they run, swim and ride together.
>
>
>This year, at ages 65 and 43, Dick and Rick finished their 24th Boston
>Marathon, in 5,083rd place out of more than 20,000 starters. Their best
>time? Two hours, 40 minutes in 1992--only 35 minutes off the world
>record, which, in case you don't keep track of these things, happens to
>be held by a guy who was not pushing another man in a wheelchair at the
>time.
>
>
>``No question about it,'' Rick types. ``My dad is the Father of the
>Century.''
>
>
>And Dick got something else out of all this too. Two years ago he had a
>mild heart attack during a race. Doctors found that one of his arteries
>was 95% clogged. ``If you hadn't been in such great shape,'' one doctor
>told him, "you probably would've died 15 years ago.'' So, in a way, Dick
>and Rick saved each other's life.
>
>
>Rick, who has his own apartment (he gets home care) and works in Boston,
>and Dick, retired from the military and living in Holland, Mass. ,
>always find ways to be together. They give speeches around the country
>and compete in some backbreaking race every weekend, including this
>Father's Day.
>
>
>That night, Rick will buy his dad dinner, but the thing he really wants
>to give him is a gift he can never buy.
>
>
>``The thing I'd most like,'' Rick types, ``is that my dad sit in the
>chair and I push him once.''

Widziałem jakieś 5 lat temu relacje z pierwszego triatlonu, w Którym wzieli udział. Bł to najsłynniejszy i najcięższy z tego typu imprez triatlon na Hawajach. Koleś przepłynąl z synem 3km, przejechał rowerem 182km i przebiegł 42km!!! zajeło mu to od 6 rano do ok godziny 23!!!! Dojeżdżając do końca odcinka rowerowego byli ostatni i mimo, że miejsce się tu nie liczy to domety ostatni nie dobiegli bo po drodze część uczestników odpuściła a część nie dobiegła do godziny 24 a wtedy właśnie kończono klasyfikowanie uczestników. Mówie wam, że byłem jeszcze wtedy chodziakiem, ale zawsze kiedy oglądam jakąś relacje z triatlonu to myśle sobie o nich! Ten filmik był właśnie z tego triatlonu.
