When Boston Marathon bombing victim Erika Brannock arrived home to Baltimore this week, the first item on her wish list was finding the stranger who saved her life amid the chaos that followed the April attack. The 29-year-old Towson preschool teacher looked directly into a bank of television cameras from an airport terminal and made a plea to the woman she knew only as "Joan from California. " She said, "I don't know if you're even watching, but Joan, I would love to find you and tell you thank you and give you a hug. " On Wednesday, she got that chance.

The Ravens continue contract negotiations with Vonta Leach and they remain the front runner to sign the two-time Pro Bowl fullback. It was initially believed that Leach would make a decision by Friday. However, talks will now continue into the weekend. “As far as I know, nothing has changed,” Harbaugh said. “We're patient about it right now. We haven't forced the issue. We're looking at some of our guys and we're seeing where we're at with our roster right now. I believe Ozzie and Vonta are still talking.” The Ravens, who drafted Harvard fullback Kyle Juszczyk in the fourth round of April's draft, terminated the contract of Leach in June after they failed to agree to a restructuring of his $3 million base salary for 2013.

Erika Brannock slides to the edge of her wheelchair. She looks down at a pair of carefully selected gray New Balance athletic shoes. And stands. Her thigh slides deeper into a flexible plastic socket as she shifts her weight from her right leg to a new prosthetic limb. The bone where her left leg was amputated above the knee sends a sharp, shooting pain, and she starts to cry. Not because it hurts. Because she is about to walk again. "It's been a long time," she says to her mother, Carol Downing, among those watching at an orthotics and prosthetics supplier in Linthicum.

Erika Brannock has not been to an organized race since April, when the first of two homemade bombs near the Boston Marathon finish line so badly injured the 29-year-old Towson preschool teacher that doctors were forced to amputate her left leg above the knee. That will change Saturday, when Brannock -- who took her first steps with a prosthesis just last weekend -- serves as the official starter at the Baltimore Running Festival. The decision to participate was not a difficult one. "I immediately said, of course, that I would love to do it and it would be a huge honor," Brannock said Wednesday.
