Runner despite CF

Hi everyone, I'm Morgan. A few months ago I started Trikafta, and literally changed everything.

Trikafta has improved my running

For about a year and a half, I had suffered severe, frequent coughing episodes which led to sleep deprivation, stress and decreased lung function. I was hospitalized three times in 2019. Within a few days of starting Trikafta however, my coughing disappeared, as well as most of my other symptoms. My lung function is now at 104%, and my long-distance running performance has never been better.

A local newspaper recently did a story about my journey with running and CF, so I figured I'd post it here for anyone who wants to read it here.
