I can’t wait to see this film about Rob Krar, Caroline Boller, and Karl Hoagland.

Here’s all the methodology and part of the results from the WADA test that was at risk of not being released. When asked in a guaranteed confidential setting, 29% of elite athletes in T&F admitted to doping. At another event, the results exceeded 45%.

Tahoe200 is this weekend. I’ll be up there (not sure where on Sat…any help?) watching for URP guests Mark Tanaka, Phil Wiley, and some dude named Meepmeep. All I know about Meepmeep is that he won the award for “worst feet” at Bigfoot 200 and that he earned his name by saying “meepmeep” when he leaves aid stations. Obvious guest idea, right? Other top women include Betsy Nye and Suzanna Bon. Weather report says it’s going to be a scorcher, so the URP golden shower will likely make an appearance too.
