BELLEVUE, Wash.  - Erica Nash says she wants to finish what she started.

The 37-year-old mother from Bellevue was running the Boston Marathon last April when tragedy struck. The bombings interrupted her run, and she was stopped about a mile from the finish.

Nash, who has cerebral palsy, says she immediately started suffering seizures.  She had PTSD since the race.

Yet, Nash says that will not stop her from returning to Boston on Monday.  She plans on attending a memorial for the victims and participating in the marathon again.  She says it will be her last race.
