Every Step Is a Gift: Caregiving, Endurance, and the Path to Gratitude (Hardcover)
According to AARP, 78 percent of people find themselves in the position of caregiver to a loved one at some point in their life. But not many will embrace ultramarathons as a coping technique.
Every Step Is a Gift: Caregiving, Endurance, and the Path to Gratitude explores Josh Lasky's eleven-year journey as a caregiver to his father who battled Parkinson's Disease. Josh was just twenty-one when he took on this Herculean responsibility, and although his story is unique, it is also universal.
In his uplifting and life-affirming journey, Josh's service to his father turns into a personal source of strength for him after deciding to ride his bike, alone, from Washington, DC to Portland. Along the way he discovers his love for endurance sports while also uncovering the realization that, although caregiving can be challenging, it can also be empowering.
Whether you're a caregiver, an athlete, or just dealing with the hardships of the human condition, this book can help you to find meaning in the struggle-and become stronger and more grateful in the process.
