Why I took the pledge:
I transitioned into this sport because it reflected how pure and natural running was to me. Running and competing is raw and stripped in nature. It’s important to ensure that very spirit is sustainable in the sport I love.
This community has become my family. We support, push and celebrate eachother at all levels. ANYONE who is dishonest to their family has betrayed that bond and has forfeited their right to compete amongst the peers they have cheated. As a competitor, runner, friend and human, I cannot support the dishonesty.
As we grow together a family and a sport, we need to mature under the united pledge that we accept nothing more than a clean sport and competition.
