My name is James Featherstone, this is my second marathon. I only did a half last time. I am going to shoot for a full one this year, but not sure if I will be able to make it. Before last year’s marathon, it had been a long time since I had written anything. I had been neglecting many of my interests and last year I decided to do the things I like. It was very liberating for me to get back to writing. I am excited to join again this year and look forward to seeing what everyone contributes.
