This is the story of Dick & Rick Hoyt, the most inspirational father and son team to race in an Ironman. Ricky told his Dad his disability disappeared when they ran. So they ran. The doctors didn’t expect severely disabled Ricky to live, but his parents wouldn’t give up on him. They were right. He graduated from high school and college. And he and his father became famous as they competed in running events.

At minute 5:05 Rick said “if anyone takes the time to get to know me, they’ll realize I’m just like anybody else”. Watch them finish the Ironman at 4:27.
