A well-known metro runner assaulted at a Des Moines bar is being giving a special honor.
Friday, organizers announced Forey Jacobson will start the IMT Des Moines Marathon later this month.
You might remember, Jacobson was assaulted last November. Jacobson was in a coma and had to undergo several surgeries after the attack.
He is still recovering but will run the 5K road race associated with the marathon.
