"Dick and Rick Hoyt are a father-and-son team from Massachusetts who together compete just about continuously in marathon races. And if they’re not in a marathon they are in a triathlon — that daunting, almost superhuman, combination of 26.2 miles of running, 112 miles of bicycling, and 2.4 miles of swimming. Together they have climbed mountains, and once trekked 3,735 miles across America.

It’s a remarkable record of exertion — all the more so when you consider that Rick can't walk or talk.

For the past twenty five years or more Dick, who is 65, has pushed and pulled his son across the country and over hundreds of finish lines. When Dick runs, Rick is in a wheelchair that Dick is pushing. When Dick cycles, Rick is in the seat-pod from his wheelchair, attached to the front of the bike. When Dick swims, Rick is in a small but heavy, firmly stabilized boat being pulled by Dick. "

Without a doubt the father of all time.

I first saw them compete at an Ironman and thought wow....Then today i found an article listing their site........


Truly amazing

Sometimes all you can do is look them in the eye and ask " how much did your mom drink when she was pregnant with you?"

It makes you wonder that if *they* can do that, why can't we acheive just a small percentage of what *they* do?


In the dark you can't see ugly, but you can feel fat
