Father, Paralyzed Son Prepare For Ironman

The Ford Ironman Triathlon is only two days away (Oct. 21st), and some of the greatest athletes in the World are descending on Kona, Hawaii for the event which consists of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride, and a full 26.2 mile marathon. ESPN.com has posted a great story on the event about a father and his paralyzed son, who will be doing their fifth, and final Ironman. The two have been competing for years, first starting with a short five mile run, and building up to marathons, and branching out from there to triathlons and eventually Ironman triathlons. It’s a very inspiratonal story, and I’ll be watching this weekend to see if they can finish again this year. Good luck guys!
