2019 Boston Marathon Preview: Des Linden Returns to Defend, Desisa Ready for Kirui, Jordan Hasay Returns- LetsRun.com Track Talk

The 2019 Boston Marathon is Monday and this week's podcast was recorded live in Boston just after we talked to the pros on Friday.

On the women's side, Des Linden is back to defend and fit. Will Worknesh Degefa live up to her 2:17 in Dubai or wilt on the Boston hills? How will Jordan Hasay do in her return?

The men's side should be a great battle between Geoffrey Kirui and Lelisa Desisa but Americans Shadrack Biwott, Jared Ward, Scott Fauble, and Dathan Ritzenhein are ready to mix it up.

We break down Boston and then at the end discuss the positive biological passport violation of Patrick Sang coached athlete Cyrus Rutto. What does it mean?
