Need a dose of inspiration from one of the most b*d*ss athletes we’ve ever encountered? Queue up this podcast! Dimity and co-host Sarah Wassner Flynn talk to Andrea Lytle Peet, a runner and triathlete who was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) at age 33—and told she had 2 to 5 years to live. Eight years later, Andrea is on her way to finishing 50 marathons in 50 states on her recumbent bike (at recording time, she had just 2 to go!) and has raised over $750,000 for progressive ALS research.

Joined by her friend, Pilates instructor, and fellow runner Jessica Hofheimer, Andrea talks about:

—The rawness she felt after her diagnosis, and how she directed her energy towards a goal;
—How being able to continue to move her body, both on the road and in the pool, is so freeing;
—Her brand new 50for50 Challenge that all can join and upcoming documentary; and
—Why an eighth swallow will soon join the beautiful flock on her arm.
