This week kicked off with a bang, with the 118th running of the Boston Marathon. It went off without a hitch on Monday — but with tremendous emotion.

Partially because, for the first time in 31 years, an American man won the men's race.

Also this week, the Patrick administration places new restrictions on the powerful hydrocodone based painkiller, Zohydro.

"There is a crisis of overuse and misuse of opiate prescription drugs that oftentimes can lead to the use of heroin," the governor said.

And, Boston Children's Hospital's computer networks have been under attack, allegedly by members of the hacker group, Anonymous.

Plus, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren's new book hits the stands, fueling speculation that she may be considering a presidential run in 2016.
