Dick and Rick Hoyt have promised to run the Boston Marathon is 2014. I don’t know much about the two men. However, I’m learning.
I’m aware that Rick is the disabled son and that his father, Dick, has pushed him through thousands of road miles. If I’m not mistaken, they’ve participated in over thirty Boston Marathons, not to mention all of the other races!
Dick has recently been quoted by President Obama.
My wife, a marathon runner, has their book at home – I’m going to read it! I also know that she’s been brought to tears by the love of the two men for each other.
Love can inspire us all. It can shun criticism, refute evil, and employ compassion.
Thank you, Dick and Rick Hoyt, for inspiring us all.
Most of all, thank you for leading by example!
