Why I took the pledge:
From the beginning, running was a way for me to test the limits of my own endurance. I also love competition. I thrive off of it. But in order for competition to be meaningful for me, I believe that it’s important for that competition to be fair, and for the playing field to be level. I compete clean because I love to test myself against courses and against other competitors who train and compete clean. I want to be a shining example for those who come after me…whether it’s an athlete in high school or college right now, or my 10 year old son who may someday decide to run competatively. I want to show them that you can achieve great results with hard work. I want them to love the sport because of it’s beauty and simplicity, and know that the journey is just as important as the destination.
