A few posts ago I wrote about a challenging situation I was in with regards to a translation I was asked to do. I said, "For those of you who have not studied languages before, the nature of such a request may be lost on you. It would be like saying to someone, 'Oh, would you mind doing an Ironman while wearing snowshoes, oven mitts and a blindfold? Oh, and just for fun… can you tie yourself to a Hummer and pull it behind you through each of the 3 sports?'"
I was reminded of that today when my massage therapist sent me this as an inspiration:
I almost did not believe the story. Then I saw the video at the end of the page. And got kind of choked up.
But still... the skeptic in me wondered. (The writing on that web page was so bad it really made me wonder if the story was true!) So, I Googled them. Apparently, they are for real: http://www.teamhoyt.com/
CNN even picked up the story: http://www.cnn.com/US/9911/29/hoyt.family/index.html
Just goes to show how sometimes, the impossible isn't really that way at all.
