Here I chat with Andrea Peet and her husband, Dave Peet. Andrea's been on a journey to become the first person with ALS to complete 50 marathons in 50 states.

So excited to introduce you to Andrea & Dave Peet. Andrea was diagnosed with ALS at 33 years old. Now at 40, she is super close to accomplishing her goal of completing 50 marathons in 50 states all while living with ALS, a fatal disease with no cure. Andrea and Dave created Team Drea to raise awareness and funds to help cure ALS. With only 3 races to go, Andrea will soon be the first person with ALS to complete a marathon in every state in the United States.
The countdown begins with only races left in California, New York and Alaska. The final race will be at Prince of Wales Island, Alaska as Andrea celebrates 8 years with ALS despite her 2-5 year death sentence. Andrea’s journey of traveling to all 50 states will be shown in a future documentary that's being created titled, "Go On Be Brave: The Drea Story." Andrea’s bravery and determination is incredibly uplifting. Listen in and share this beautiful story with a friend.

Hugs, Lorri

I’ve been inspired by so much to stay focused on the positive. I’m dying to tell you about what gives me strength, makes me smile and keeps me hopeful – in hopes of inspiring you too!
