Team Hoyt

I am about 5 years younger than Dick Hoyt and I suppose it was the closeness in our age that first interested me about his story when it was brought to my attention a while back. Recently the GodTube video below was sent to me as a link and that made me decide to blog about it.

Dick has a son, Rick, who is 46 this year. Rick has MS. Rick has accomplished things that many people thought impossible. But his dad and family didn't think it was impossible and they supported him beyond any measure I can imagine.

Dick and Rick have participated in an amazing 224 Triathlons and 25 Boston Marathons and many other events totaling some 958 as of January 1, 2008.

They have a web site - Team Hoyt.

The video made me cry.

I have seen this video before and it still makes me cry. The way that Dick carries his son through all that must be the way God carries us through life. Hope we all make it ok to the finish line.

I have seen it to and it really hits a nerve. It's amazing the strength we have when we are loved by others.
