Re: Whatever happened to bajsmannen?

A woman did that at the Cabot Trail Relay Race two years ago I think. The difference was it was Leg 1 and she was on a competitve team. To stop for a few minutes might have cost her team and her 16 teammates first place over a weekend race so she decided to keep going. I, on the other hand, would ha...

Re: USADA bans middle-aged recreational runner

Its performance enhancing in that it lets an older woman perform like a younger woman. Well where do you draw the line between something that treats a biological issue?

Re: USADA bans middle-aged recreational runner

It was probably a race sanctions by the USADA and they probably take random samples as well as test the winners. It sure sounds like this was not a person trying to get a competitive advantage.

I would not be surprised if this applied to virtually every country, including Canada. When there is money, ego and/or jobs on the line, people will do a lot of shady things.

Re: "Chickamauga Marathon Winner Disqualified..."

Well, at the finish she said she pb'ed by about 7-8 minutes but the reporter couldn't find any marathon that she ran in less than 4:00 hours so it sounds like she was lying about that too.

Mike's exaggerating. The price is actually $499.99.

Any way you cut it, it is a lot of coin. How many of the new features would the average person use regularly?
