Seven months ago, Nancy Cardenas didn't know if she was ever going to run again. She didn't even know if she was ever going to go outside again.

The Umatilla sophomore was in the hospital, stuck in bed with a virus the doctors couldn't identify. According to Cardenas, they're still not sure exactly what was wrong with her.
