Why I Took the Pledge:
Honesty and hard work are two things I don’t take lightly. I have competed in endurance sports for a long time and I have seen “cheaters” win, get busted, come back, etc.
I could not imagine standing on the starting line or the podium knowing that I got there via ill-gotten gains. Clean sport is the only way to play in my book and while I realize there will never be 100% clean sport we have to start somewhere so we can change the testing policies and mind-sets of athletes and coaches.
