"A little more than a year and a half ago I didn't know if I would be able to run again," said Mark Hager. "However, since I was motivated by a friend and inspired by another athlete's amazing story of recovery, I returned to running and was able to achieve my goal of completing a marathon. I hope that will become a source of encouragement, assistance and inspiration that will help other athletes achieve their current and future goals."
