    Hi Joshua…Long time marathon runner stricken with LYME disease. Have not been able to get my mojo back since discovering disease. I miss my sport and want to get back to it but each time i make the attempt i am overcome with chronic fatigue and breathing problems. My weight has increased to an uncomfortable level. can you suggest something or know anybody personally, who made a comeback that maybe i can talk too ? Thanks for reading my email…Safe Trails.
