Times sports editor recounts terror of Boston bombing

April 16, 2013

Blackstone Valley Sports Editor Eric Benevides knew he would not run one of his best marathons when he set out on Monday’s 26.2-mile Boston Marathon course, and that may well have spared him the horrific scene marking the race memories of many others.
Two bombs detonated near the course’s finish line killed three people, including an 8-year-old boy, by last night’s tally and wounded scores of others as Benevides and his wife, Bozena Chmielewski, were still running the 26.2-mile course.
