WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - One of the most inspirational stories from Saturday's Purdue Boilermaker Half Marathon will come from a man who is running in his first half marathon since having a stroke.
70-year-old Mike Johnson grew up in Benton County and started running half and full marathons in the 1980s.
After losing most of his ability to speak following a stroke in 2008, Johnson moved back to West Lafayette.
In 2009, he was cleared to begin running again working his way back up to the half marathon distance.
He is running on Saturday and hopes to finish the race in 2:02.
The race starts Saturday morning at 8:00.
