For Everyone Who Says "I Can't"

Here is an email I got that made me cry like a baby.  I’m not sure what aspect moved me so, but perhaps it is just about love. 

In the future when my clients tell me they can’t stop smoking, eating, drinking, or start to exercise, I will show them this video.  Sometimes, we all just need to get over ourselves and live up to our human potential.  After all, what else do we have?  

(Here is the email as I received it.  Let it move you too.)

A son asked his father, ' Dad , will you take part in a marathon with me?' The father who, 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' .

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.
