Inspiration

Today I am grateful for inspiration.  I know I shared my mom’s story yesterday, but when my son posted this on Facebook today I just had to share it with everyone.  My daughter-in-law is kicking cancers ass!  And my son is there to help her do it!

Matt’s Post. . ..

Late March at about 7 months pregnant and knee-deep in chemotherapy treatments my wife, Susan LoGiudice decided that she was going to run the Philly 10k in August.

August also meant the start of her daily (weekdays) radiation treatments and her return to work full time.

Today despite more obstacles than most, and with the help of her friendKeri Elizabeth, Susan completed the 6.2 mile run through the streets of Philadelphia. She will tell you that this is no big deal, that her time was slow, or that she still has a lot of work to do to get her pre-baby body back.

I will tell you that the mental toughness required to sign up for that race when she did, and complete it the way she did, is nothing short of inspirational.

I’d be lying if I said that the past year hasn’t been difficult, stressful, joyous, and tearful. The virtual roller coaster keeps changing before our eyes, but we ride it together and I am so proud to have a wife who is a hero to some and inspiration to many, including myself.
