For most of the nation, the 3rd Monday in April is absolutely nothing more than the start of an extra work week. The weekend's over and it's back to the work. But for many people in Massachusetts, the grind could effortlessly spend time because of Patriots' Day, a lawful state holiday to honor the start of the American Revolution. It's in addition the day that marks the running of the Boston Marathon, the earliest and most prominent annual marathon in the world. The race draws in more than one thousand viewers and 25,000 runner, a far cry from the 15 distance runners that took the course for the inaugural race in 1897.
