Inspiring Video

I recently found a video that was being shared on Facebook about Connor and Caden Long.  Caden has Cerebral Palsy, but he is perfect in his brother's eyes.  For Connor, he believes that Caden can do anything he wants to do--including running triathlons    Over the last year or so, Connor and Caden have participated in multiple triathlons together in a very special way--Connor pulls or pushes Caden in all three events.  He rides in a bike trailer during the riding portion, he is in a jogging stroller during the running, and he floats in a raft during the swimming.

This video bring tears to my eyes because of the love and the bond that these two boys have.  Just look at the smiles on Caden's face during the race!  He would probably never get to participate in something like that without Connor's help!

These inspiring boys earned the Sports Illustrated Kids of the Year award, and I couldn't agree more.  I'm so glad that SI chose to honor these two sweet kids.  I just love this story!
