A Montclair woman is hoping to finish the Boston Marathon this year after bombings last year stopped her less than a half-mile from the finish line.
Runner Mona Jha was somewhere around mile 26 during the 26.2 mile race when she saw the first explosion “like a big ball of fire,” she told WCBS.
She kept running until the second bomb went off. Jha then “wandered around” in a daze for some two hours before reuniting with her family, according to the website.
This year, Jha aims to finish the race.
“For me, it’ll be emotional all the way through,” Jha told WCBS.
