BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn man is set to run a half-marathon five years after suffering a traumatic brain injury.

Bryan Steinhaur, 26, was unable to speak or swallow after being beaten into a coma at a bar near Binghamton University. Now, Steinhauer takes strides each day in preparation for the March 17 half-marathon in Manhattan.

Former Binghamton University basketball player Miladin Kovacevic was charged with assault for attacking Steinhauer. He fled to his native Serbia and was later sentenced to two years in prison.

Steinhauer says he's fundraised $7,500 for the half-marathon. The money will go toward his "Minds Over Matter" Fund, which is aimed at helping others defy impossible odds.
