Hi There! My real name is Laurilyn and I’m a 45 year old mom of two. In 2010, I found myself alive but in heart failure after surviving a complicated open heart surgery. A year later, I was told my repaired valve was not working properly and I was diagnosed with cardiac myopathy. After another year of cardiac meds that significantly improved my heart function, with my cardiologist’s blessing, I started running. I also started a blog. My stubborn efforts to evolve into an athlete have been hilarious and entertaining to say the least, and I see no good reason to keep my ridiculous antics to myself. This is my (mostly) humorous blog about my crazy life and adventures in running, racing, and cardiac fitness.
My next race: The Outdoor Divas Sprint Triathlon, August 10, 2014
