Thanks MLR... It's indeed very heart warming to see the extent of a father's love for his child.

I think the race was the son's dream and dad is just helping his son fulfill that dream... :salute:

A father-son's love

Postby Angelight » Fri Nov 05, 2010 7:18 pm

This is so touching that my tears well up when I saw the clip...


One day, a son asks his dad "Daddy, would you like to run a marathon
with me?".. The father says "yes". And they run their first marathon together.

Another time, the son asks his dad again "Daddy, would you like to
run a marathon with me?". The father says "yes son".

One day, the son asks his father "Daddy, would you run the Ironman
with me?

"The Ironman is the most difficult triathlon ever (4 kms swimming,
180 kms biking, 42 km running).

And the dad says "yes".


The story looks simple until you watch the following clip. Very very touching...

yes yes! I watched this clip few yrs back and still, find it touching... U can't expect mommy to do marathon and triathlon with the kids right? I can't be like him as already took a hell of efforts just for me to complete marathon on my own... But it will definitely be nice and motivating for my DS to jog next to me when doing a marathon.

I believe there are some areas that daddy can chip in, whereby mommy find it hard to share w kid... E.g. Exercise, and video games! I know mommy win in lots of areas when come to r/s w kids, but when comes to games like psp, xbox etc, daddy can establish a unique r/s w the kids, in term of language, strategy, char, story etc. I used that for bonding and understand my kids better. 8)

Hi Angelight,

Yes, this is really touching and one of my colleagues cried buckets when I forwarded the video to him!

But problem is he got the wrong impression (I think) so I just want to check with all of you here who watched the video:

Who is the FATHER and who is the SON?

Is the Father the athelete or is the Son the athelete? Or vice-versa, who is the invalid??

I personally thought the SON is the athelete and the FATHER the invalid.

But my colleague thought the opposite, that the Father is the athelete and the son is the invalid.

What do you think?
:?

My dh's favourite. This afternoon we went to give our supports to the Dream Potters show about this young man who said hope to sing and make some money to give his parents. I didn't expected much from his singing but i was thinking since all he wishes is to sing and have audiences, why not? But in return, I was touched by his efforts to learn these songs and sang so well. He suffered from Cerebral palsy(*dh said same as the son). Many old aunties was touched to tears. He's so happy and postive thanking all who came. I don't say too much cos it will be cast on tv.
