Dick and Ricky Hoyt

Some of you may have heard of them, but until last Thursday I had never heard of Dick and Ricky Holt. This is a father/son marathon/triathlon team. Ricky has cerebral palsy, and his father has been taking him into competitions for 30 years. He’ll pull him in a dinghy while swimming, push him in a cart when running, and has a special bike for when they ride.

A good (and inspirational) video that will introduce you to them is on YouTube:

This video served as a good reminder that there are lots of good people in the world doing very good things.
