A Charlotte, N.C., woman who was injured in the bombing at the Boston Marathon last year is heading back for this year's event.

The Charlotte Observer reports that Nicole Gross was near the finish line last year waiting for her mother to finish the race when the bombs exploded.

Gross suffered two broken bones in her left leg, a severed Achilles tendon and an injury to her eardrum. Her sister, Erika Brannock of Towson, Md., lost her right leg in the blast. Gross's husband, Michael, suffered minor injuries.

Her family issued a statement saying she will attend the April 21 race to watch her mother and brother run again this year. The statement says the family wants to take back the joy of the race this year.
