My redeemer lives.

I know some of you might have seen this video but I thought I would share it with those of you who haven't. My professor shared this with my class this week and it really touched me. Here is the premise of the story ...

"A son asked his father, "Dad will you take part in a marathon with me? The father who, despite having a heart condition, says "Yes". they went on to complete the marathon together. Father and son went on 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. For those who don't know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile ocean swim, followed by a  112 mile bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 miles marathon along the coast of the Big Island. Father and son went on to complete the race together."
