Why I Took the Pledge
To me, there is nothing worse than cheating. In a sport where we feed off of the accomplishments of others to fuel our own inner drive, knowing that someone cheated to get there collapses all of that. Also, in extreme ultra distance races, I enjoy pulling for those that win with their determination and ability to push through (doing it th right way). The pain and grit that they demonstrate is too important to be overshadowed by a cheater overshadowing them.
