A Father's Love

This is a true story.

The son asked his father, "Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?"

Despite having a heart condition, the father says, "Yes". They went on to complete the marathon together. Father and son went to join other marathons, the father always saying "Yes" to his son's request of going through the race together.

One day, the son asked his father, "Dad, let's join the Ironman together." To which, his father said, "Yes" too. Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometers) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometers) bike ride and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometers) marathon along the coast of the Big Island, Hawaii.

Father and son went on to complete the race together.

Let me share with you a very touching and wonderful clip about a father and son relationship, with God's love.

Time to get some tissue papers ready.

Just look at how happy the son was when it was coming to the end of the race. And the father should get more than a round of applause for what he has done.
