Anyone concerned about heart health (read: should be everyone!) needs to listen to this episode featuring two women runners—one who survived open-heart surgery after an aortic tear, the other who had a heart attack mid-run. With Sarah and Ellison, the survivors share:

-their harrowing heart-related tales;
-that the emotional/mental recovery is taking longer than the physical;
-the importance of not dismissing warning-sign symptoms;
-the commonality of women’s responses to health crises; and,
-their returns to running and exercise.

Be sure to catch the debut of Miles of Books, a monthly bonus segment, at the end of this episode. Here are the books discussed by Ellison, SBS, and Liz. The first guest joins around 11:51.
