BROOKLYN - One Brooklyn native will be making the long run through the ING New York City Marathon, but his journey to get to the race was even longer.

Bryan Steinhauer will take on the marathon this Sunday, five years after a brutal assault left him in a coma while he was attending college at Binghamton University.

The Park Slope resident was at first unable to move and could barely speak, but he worked each day toward making a full recovery.

Steinhauer will complete the 26.2 miles for a charity he helped establish called Minds Over Matter, which aims to support young adults with traumatic brain injuries.
