Episode 178 – Running Through Grief: Terri Peay

After losing her brother to the sea in 2020, Terri Peay is taking on a 200km challenge on behalf of the RNLI, which helped her family in an hour of need.

Exercise as therapy is a strategy many of us are familiar with – and it’s her passion for running that helps Terri Peay cope with the death of her brother, Dan, whose body was recovered from the sea by the RNLI.

Determined to give something back to the organisation that brought her brother home to rest, Terri is running the London marathon as part of an incredible 200km challenge on behalf of the charity.

In this moving episode, Terri talks about her treasured memories of Dan, the tough times she’s faced during training and how she’s trying to find light through darkness.
