Charlies Rosenberg also took photos of the large march:
I was photographing the scene at Heartbreak Hill for Running Times and later moved downtown. I photographed runners a half mile from the finish line for the last 25 minutes before the explosions went off. I decided to put them into a video as a tribute to all of them. (Pretty good song, too). If you know anyone who was at or close to the finish line at 2:50 share it with them.
Paul Revere hoofed it out of the North End this morning to warn the colonists the Redcoats were coming.
Afterwards, Minutemen stood at attention in front of the Paul Revere statue and Old North Church as Taps were played and a wreath laid at a memorial for fallen patriots on the Prado.
The Patriots Day parade in Arlington was fun, but it didn't really have a lot of Minutemen - way more Shriners, in fact (and a troop of Civil War re-enactors, um, what?).

An impatient citizen couldn't even wait for the end of the St. Patrick's Day parade to complain about horse droppings. The city has, however, marked the complaint "resolved."
As of 6:45 p.m. yesterday, Boston Police say, officers had issued 336 citations for drinking in public along the St. Patrick's Day parade route - and made 26 arrests, mainly for disorderly conduct.
Mayor advises residents: Don't be a knucklehead - and if you have a house along the parade route, watch those guests near the deck railings.
