An Inspiration...and reminder...I'll Quit Bitching Now.

Dick and Rick Hoyt are a father-and-son team from Massachusetts who together compete just about continuously in marathon races. And if ... all » 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.
