Pat recaps his 2:11:02 marathon debut in Chicago last year, then dealing with the challenges of injuries at various parts of the year that followed that excluded him the World Championships in Budapest, but then leading into the return to form with his second place in the Boston Half Marathon just weeks ago.


Pat chats about his return to Australia and family and his preparations for Zatopek, what he expects from the race and how it fits into his future plans, weighing up the pathway to qualify for the Paris Olympics via the 10000m against the marathon.
He closes out with how the heat in North Carolina compares to Queensland and how he rates the current lineup of Puma shoes.
