#403: Running after Heart Surgery

As part of Heart Month, Sarah and Ellison pull up chairs with two in-studio mother runners who have each had heart surgery. (Both named Sarah!) Marvel as:
-Sarah Foster recounts running the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim-to-rim eight months after getting a pacemaker for a cardiac arrhythmia;
-Sarah Phelan tells how she qualified for and ran the 2014 Boston Marathon after having open-heart surgery to fix an aneurysm;
-both women detail how much more perseverance they have post-surgery; and,
-both women highlight the importance of paying attention to symptoms.
Sarah and Ellison talk books (natch!), including The Awakening by Kate Chopin and Long Bright River by Liz Moore, before the first Sarah-guest joins at 9:42.
