Why I took the pledge:
I am clean because I want to keep running pure. To me, running is about finding that place where I am raw and real, stripped down the basis of who I am. I crave that feeling, that simple primitive state and I want to preserve this among our sport. My passion is above competition and winning, and there is no room is our sport for those who put winning at all costs ahead of the pure, simple joy of running on a trail.
