Teri Griege, author, ironman athlete & cancer survivor

oleary_2048x2048_podcast_post_tgriege_finalAddiction and cancer threatened her life. Grace and endurance gave it back.

In a world where the media frequently love to buy, sell, trade and speak in fear, Teri realizes and honors that the human spirit is powered by hope and starved for inspiration.

She has made it her life’s work to be a pillar of hope and she has already done so by being: an iron man, author, triathlete, cancer survivor and sober for more than 20 years.

From our time with Teri, you will be reminded that life is full of good people. Appearances are deceiving. Belief in self-matters. Odds are overrated. “God winks” exist.

  • God wink – [n.] a phrase Teri coined meaning, inspired moments in which God aligns your life in ways you could never imagine.

  • See Teri’s inspiring journey to Ironman Hawaii on this video.
  • Check out Teri’s nonprofit Powered by Hope.

The LIVE INSPIRED 7 segment is a series of 7 questions, shared “rapid fire” and answered boldly (without prep!) by our guests. My hope is to leave you reflecting on our guest’s answers and YOUR answers… and excited to apply ideas from today’s show to help you live an inspired life.
