LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Amputee runner Jeff Glasbrenner stepped in a pothole at mile 15 of the Boston Marathon last spring and opened up a cut where his running blade attached below his right knee.

Glasbrenner was three blocks from the finish when the marathon was halted by the two bomb explosions.
