The Most Inspiring Bond I Have Ever Come Across x

For a long time now I have always wanted to make a difference in this world and have an impact on those around me, and have  always been inspired with powerful and influential figures.

There is one particular story that I knew I had to post , and that is the story of Dick and Rick Hoyt. Collectively known as TEAM HOYT this truly inspiring father and son compete in marathons and triathlons all around the country. 
Their story instantly captured my heart as they are no normal sporting team, Rick was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at birth and participates in these sports events via  specialised wheelchairs bicycles and a boat for the swimming part of triathlons alongside his father. 
Their sheer dedication has seen them participate in numerous events and the video below really is one of the most inspiring things I have ever seen. 
Next time I complain about going out for a short run in the cold I will be thinking of Rick as motivation to know that nothing can hold you back.
