Patch editor gives a first-hand report from the Boston Marathon.
Monday, April 15 was my first time running the Boston Marathon. It was suppose to be a fun day focused on overcoming a strenuous 26.2-mile race, but once I reached the end, I was greeted with panic, caution and tears rather than high fives and celebrations. Monday was a perfect day for a runner and spectator, it was sunny and warm with a cool breeze. It would be hard to find an excuse why anyone with the day off from work wouldn’t be in town to either watch the race, the Sox game or to grab a bite at a restaurant. I was running this marathon as a bandit. I had no official number and was nervous security or someone from the Boston Athletic Association would kick me out. Once I reached the start line, it was smooth sailing. I was full of …

Here are the Sharon runners registered in the Boston Marathon this year.
They run for all sorts of reasons: in memory of a loved one, to raise money for a cause ... and just to say, "I did it." The 117th annual Boston Marathon takes place on April 15 this year, taking runners through the course that threads from the Hopkinton starting line to Boston. As it states on the official website, "the Boston Marathon is the world's oldest annual marathon and ranks as one of the world's most prestigious road racing events. The Boston Athletic Association manages this American classic, which is sponsored by John Hancock Financial Services. The Boston Marathon has distinguished itself as the pinnacle event within the sport of road racing by virtue of its traditions, longevity and method of gaining entry into the race (…

Wednesday, April 10
Bob Sondheim, the retired athletic director for the Sharon Public Schools entered into rest April 8, 2013 at the age of 63.

Loving brother of Arthur Sondheim III and his wife Monique of ME. Cherished uncle of Elizabeth Levesque and Arthur Sondheim IV and loving companion of Carol Abram of Sharon. Funeral services are private.

Many of the groups …
Bob Sondheim was a well-known figure in the Sharon community for all his involvement in town.
Fittingly, he was the only athletic director in the Hockomock League with a sailing team. If he had his way, there would have been a crew team, a surfing team, ice fishing team and probably a water polo team at Sharon High. The more time in the pool, the pond or the ocean, the better for him. "My fellow athletic directors call me 'Commodore Sondheim,' "' he said with a laugh a few years back. Bob Sondheim, the longtime swimming coach and athletic director, died Monday at age 63, way too young for a man who had given so much to so many. When Bob took over as the athletic director some 12 years ago, replacing the late Dick Corbirn, he had been working in government for people with disabilities. He was teased about being the new kid and …

Sondheim, who retired last year, died Monday, according to reports Tuesday morning.
Robert Sondheim, Sharon's former Athletic Director, died Monday, according to an announcement on the Sharon Public Schools website Tuesday morning.

A roast was held in Sondheim's honor in September at Saphire Estate in Sharon, an event at which several figures, including former WBZ Channel 4 correspondent Ron Sanders and former New England Patriots quarterback Steve Grogan, spoke. Bill Martin took over for Sondheim as Athletic …
