Ironman and Family

Dick and Rick Hoyt are pioneers in Ironman triathlon. They inspire so many of us to feel grateful that our body can carry us the whole way of whatever distance race, particularly in those longer miles. In hard-copy Triathlete Magazine this month, I read about 8-year-old Conner Green who tows his 6-year-old brother Cayden who has cerebral palsy and cannot walk or talk. Connor says, “Everybody wants to win, but it’s not all about winning. Really it’s about having fun.”

  1. awesome! I don’t know if I will ever race a triathlon but this certainly inspires me to even think it possible! thanks for sharing 😀

    1. It’s impossible not to cry when you see these guys–it’s a tribute to great love! I’m so glad you enjoyed it. And I bet if you wanted to do a triathlon (maybe a sprint) then you absolutely could. Having a baby makes you really tough! 🙂

      1. Haha! It certainly does! I just might start training for one for next year 😀
