It’s Sad…

That is does not shock me in the least that players in major sports (NFL, MLB, etc.) are using PEDs which are now dispensed at “anti-aging clinics.” For these people there are tens of millions of dollars at stake. The fact is, some people just do not give a s*#& and will do anything to get an edge. They will justify their decisions to themselves by saying others are doing the same and it is a level playing field but that is all a bunch of crap.

I mean, we have age groupers doping in Gran Fondos and to get to (and compete) at IM Kona. There is not even money at stake and people are willing to flat out cheat (and risk their health) for a faster finish time.  Hey there peeps, NO ONE gives a s*&^ if you went 9:30 or 10 hours…it is just your overblown ego that makes you think it is important.

And, while we are at it, Low Testosterone is not a medical condition.  It is aging. That is why you compete in age group categories against those who are at similar stages in their lives physiologically.

My point…work hard and play nice. People who take PEDs make me sick.

  1. Hey, so I hear a lot about PEDs in age groupers, because – I dunno – they have access and little testing. But, I'm not sure about how common it is in the pro triathlete ranks. Like, I feel like it's not. But, maybe I'm wrong?

  2. I have no idea but the pessimist in me says it is more common than we would think. I hope I am wrong.

  3. Right on, as we used to say in the '60s!
