AM- 53º OH YES. So much better. Still not 100%, but I think my strength is coming back. Progressive run 7:38, 7:32, 7:26, 7:20, 6:49

There is an new marathon Saturday. I wonder if I still have enough fitness to run it strong. I know I could finish, but I'd like to race it, I just wonder if I lost too much fitness these past 3 weeks.
