Monday Morning Motivation: Bailey Matthews
August 31, 2015
Chances are that unless you were on holiday in a remote location at the end of July, you’ve already seen this inspirational video, but it’s so heart-warming and motivational that I wanted to share it again.
Eight-year-old Bailey, from Doncaster, has cerebral palsy and was cheered over the line by hundreds of spectators after completing a 100m lake swim, 4,000m bike and 1,300m run. The emotional crowd shouted its encouragement when Bailey stepped away from his walking support to finish the last 20 metres of the race unaided – and into the proud arms of his parents Jonathan and Julie Matthews.
This inspirational young man also regularly runs at his local parkrun, Clumber Park. If Bailey can do a triathlon, what’s stopping you?
