Team Hoyt - Highly Motivational

Guest Author
216 Triathlons, 6
Ironman (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and
26.2 mile run in succession), 20
s, 65 Marathons, 25 Boston Marathons and many more races. 2:40:47 PR
on Marathon and 1:21:12 PR on Half Marathon and many more records. This is
Team Hoyt - a father-and-son
(Dick and Rick) team from Massachusetts who together compete just about
continuously in marathon races.

This, by all standards, is extreme
perseverance. And all the more so because Rick Hoyt was born disabled and
suffers from cerebral
. Dick carries him in a special seat up front as they bike, pulls him
in a special boat as they swim, and pushes him in a special wheelchair as they
run. And Dick learned swimming and rode bike for the first time after he was 6 years
old. All this because Rick, at the age of 13, mentioned he didn't feel
handicapped when they jointly participated in a local 5-mile benefit run.

and encouraging story
