Disabilities no hurdle for Del Mar family of athletes

Jim and Lisa Pathman of Del Mar push their 16-year-old twin sons Shane, left, and Riley, who were born with cerebral palsy, as they demonstrate the racing chairs they planned to use Oct. 19 so that all four of them could compete in a triathlon.

When Jim Pathman found out in 1998 that his wife, Lisa, was expecting twins, he bought a matching pair of Schwinn bikes for the boys. Seventeen years later, the bikes are still in their boxes, because twins Shane and Riley were born with cerebral palsy. But as Jim would say, when there’s a Pathman will, there’s a Pathman way. And on Sunday, Oct. 19, the active family of four achieved their dream of completing a triathlon in La Jolla.
