Kudos to Canyons 100k Endurance Run for clearly stating their drug policy for all to see.  If you haven’t read my post on this, here it is.  And if you’re looking for a tough race (or the best prep available for Western States), definitely check out the race. This year’s winners were Rob Krar and Magdalena Boulet.

In response to the PED issues, this site has popped up with “pledges” from elite runners to stay clean.  It’s a great idea and it’s showing how elites feel about the situation–which is great–but in my opinion it’s putting too much faith in IAAF and hinging on WADA’s list, which I find to be not appropriate for our sport.

…because one thing is for sure: We need to stay the hell away from the IAAF.

Why we can stop doing sit ups. Whew!

A well-reasoned and thorough explanation of Gordy’s Western States predicament.  I hope this issue is over.
