The correct answer is:

“John’s energy was very low after he ran an entire marathon.”


Explanation:

The phrase “after running an entire marathon” is a modifier with an incorrect subject (John’s energy). As written, the sentence sounds like John’s energy ran the marathon, but rearranging the phrases makes it clear that John himself ran the marathon.
