I was reminded of this little video when a client came in the other day and told me that she had just competed in her very first triathlon. Eagerly, I scoured YouTube to be able to share it with you.
You’ve probably heard it or seen it before, but it’s about a son who was born in 1962. One day he, who is only able to communicate by computer, asked his father to run a race with him. The father agreed and the rest is history.
(I should mention that this particular race consists of 2.4 miles of swimming, 112 miles of biking and 26.2 miles of running!)
I hope that I love Bennett this well.
It is impossible for me to get through the first 2:00 minutes without bursting into tears of utter wonder at this father’s love! (Even Brian cried the very first time he saw it.) So beautiful! So moving! No matter what kind of day I’m having, this reminder of a father’s commitment to his child is always guaranteed to turn it around.
If you’d like more background, here’s the father being interviewed. He’s incredibly humble about the whole thing.
