EPO AND DRUGS

Do any of you think that a local/citizen runner- road racer would ever embark on such a journey in order to win, say, the V-Day 10K?

I can't fathom it but sometimes I hear things that make me wonder.

What all say the masses?

No.

The only people who might are those who run 3 races a weekend for the cash...but I don't see any evidence/reason for someone to do that.

Drugs are a way to make money. No sane person would take them to simply run faster. I would argue that taking drugs in synonymous with stealing and those who are caught should be prosecuted as if they were a common thief.

EPO is absurdly expensive. It's hard for regular joes like us to afford it.

Which is why I stick with old-school blood doping, of course.

BTW, thx Jake for helping me withdraw post-workout last night. Those red blood cells are going to handy down the road, and I'm always too squeamish with the needles to do it on my own.

I think you would be surprised at the number of weekend athletes who stupidly dope for the sake of winning and impressing their friends. I know this is not cycling nor Miami, but when I lived and raced in Miami there were too many rumors about local joe's that were on some juice or another. I don't see why DC would be immune.
