Why I took the pledge:
As a physician with a passion for both sports medicine and trail running, I see how doping can negatively affect the spirit of the sport and the overall health and wellness of the athlete. When we toe that line, it’s after countless hours of intense, dedicated training fueled by grit and a pure love of trail running. Performance-enhancing drugs threaten the foundation of what I consider Mother Nature’s sport.
Through a united front, we can have the greatest impact on keeping the sport of trail running clean and the runners healthy!
