EPPING - 33-year-old Nicole Niles is running the Boston Marathon on Monday.
Two years ago, the Epping woman was running the course and had to stop a half-mile from the Marathon finish line when the two bombs exploded.
Like thousands of runners, she didn't get a chance to finish.
In 2013, Nile's family was waiting for her at the finish line. Her father was injured during one of the blasts when his eardrum ruptured.
It's been two years, and he's still suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
"My brother, my husband, and a friend of mine have difficult times being in large crowds and loud noises," said Niles.
She said she's running the Boston Marathon in memory of her favorite aunt, Mary Rogers, who died after a courageous battle with Leukemia. In her honor, Niles is raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
"I'm just hoping to finish."
