Ultramarathon and Trail Running Daily News

Mario shares his thoughts on the Nike Sub2 project in his latest Morning Shakeout. Food for thought: How much interest would there be for a similar project, but one with athletes admittedly and openly on PEDs? Not a race, but a test to see if sub 2 is possible. I’d sure watch it.
