Marathon Plans Foiled Again!

Sorry for not posting in a couple months! I kept meaning to update, but life got busy with the school year ending, finding a place to live, and packing. Grandma’s marathon is this weekend, but I won’t be there. About 2 months ago I somehow injured my back and it progressively became worse and worse.…
