Be Brave - Andrea Peet with Meredith Atwood Find Your Finish Line with Mike Reilly

    • Sports

By 2013, Andrea Peet had run a marathon and done nine triathlons, including a 70.3-mile half IRONMAN. In 8 months, she went from the strongest she'd ever been to walking with a cane – as she was diagnosed with ALS in May 2014, at 33 years old. ALS is a debilitating disease for which there is no treatment or cure.

Andrea realized that if there was something she wanted to accomplish, the time was now. 

Andrea Peet's journey began in 2016 at the Shamrock Marathon in Virginia Beach, Va., though most of her races were completed in the last three years. Along the way, Peet has raised over $850,000 for the Team Drea Foundation, an organization she co-founded in 2016 that supports ALS research efforts. Andrea most recently achieved her goal of running a marathon in all 50 states. 

Listen in to Andrea and Meredith as they take you through her incredible journey on Find Your Finish Line.
