Patrick Ahearn, the Norman High runner who lost part of his leg in a jet ski accident last summer, is running again.
Friday, he'll be competing again, too.
He will compete for the first time since the accident Friday at Putnam City High School. With a prosthetic running blade on his left leg, he will run the 400 meters.
"He could probably do an 800," Norman coach Scott Monnard said, "but he doesn't want to do too much too soon."
Ahearn only began running on the blade prosthetic a few weeks ago.
The track events at Putnam City are slated to begin at 1:45 p.m., and the boys' 400 is expected to be run between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m.
