WALLINGFORD - — In 2019, Len Brin ran his fastest marathon time, 3 hours, 27 minutes. He missed qualifying for the Boston Marathon by only a few minutes.

But last summer it was a struggle some days for Brin to get out of bed. His heart raced out of control when he tried to run and soon walking and even just standing up became a challenge.

Brin, 52, of Cheshire had COVID-19 in November 2020.
