Powered by Hope; An Interview With Ironman Triathlete and Stage IV Cancer Survivor Teri Griege

Teri Griege

In 2009, shortly after completing her first Ironman Triathalon, Teri Griege was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer. She was 48 years old.

During our conversation we discussed:

  • How her diagnosis saved the lives of her two older sisters.
  • Her setting a goal to complete a half Ironman one year after her diagnosis and how she trained for this during her cancer treatments.
  • Completing six major marathons around the world.
  • Her book, Powered by Hope and the non-profit she created by the same name.
  • Her advocacy work with Pedal the Cause, the Colorectal Cancer Alliance and Fight CRC.
