I've been feeling poorly lately and thinking what a drag it is to have Lyme. A friend sent me this. It really lifts my spirits - makes me want to fight harder. A real feel good video about life.

THE STORY
An invalid son asked his father, 'Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?'.

The father, despite having a heart condition, says 'Yes'. They went on to complete the marathon together.

Father and son went on to join other marathons, the father always saying 'Yes' to his son's request of going through the race together.

One day, the son asked his father, 'Dad, let's join the Ironman together.' To which, his father said 'Yes' too.

For those who don't know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast of the Big Island .

Father and son went on to complete the race together. View this race at.....
