Re: Canadian athlete disqualified at Ironman Canada

On a related note, I offered to (legally) transfer my half marathon bib to a friend since I won't be able to run. He said I was being "nazi-like" by insisting on a proper transfer instead of just letting him have my bib. :roll: Wasn't there a case where a dude running with a women's bib p...

I assumed the David Suzuki challenge would be to travel back and forth between my six homes 30 times by private jet while scolding the proles for their carbon footprint.

i'm the odd duck, but i could totally understand why someone would cheat to run boston. and how they would still enjoy it. i mean, the roar of crowds as you're down boylston isn't dimmer just because you cheated to get there. sure, you're only getting the thrill of running the race and a lifetime o...

I don't care. It doesn't affect me personally and not a single person in the world was affected by this. Except the person whose spot she took in Boston. This happened prior to the new rules.

Re: Just in Time for Boston--There are cheaters in your mids

But at the time, there was a quirk in the course. If memory serves, it was around the 27 K mark. One ran down into Bowness Park, did either a 1 K or 1 mile loop that returned one back to where they entered the park. Aid stations and porta potties were there. So someone who wanted to cheat could hav...

Definitely uncharacteristic candor for a busted athlete, although I'd be curious to see if that would change if any of the hundreds of millions of dollars she's already banked were in jeopardy. I'm actually slightly more impressed that tennis managed to catch a doper and not work some backroom deal...

Interesting. I didn't know that. Not really a laughing matter.

Re: Man dies at Krispy Kreme donut challenge in U.S.

The event is actually called the Krispy Kreme Challenge. Is the headline writer supposed to rename it?
