This might make you cry. But go ahead and watch it. You’ll thank me later.

Connor and Cayden Long are two brothers who are redefining what it means to be a good sport. First of all, I find it pretty amazing that a nine-year-old is competing in triathlons. But then to literally carry his younger brother with him is just incredible. “He’s no burden; he’s my brother.”

These kids won the 2012 Sports Illustrated SportsKids of the year, and I think it’s so well deserved. You can read more of their story here.

p.s. I think it’s completely adorable that his long-term goal is to have a flag on the moon in their honor. That’ll probably come after they finish the Kona Ironman.

I have a fern I named Frankenstein. I like leprechauns, practicing kung fu moves on my dining room furniture, and pretending that one day I will move to Fiji. I dislike my neighbors' kids, anything that is chartreuse, and Ben Roethlisberger.
