  1. Roger and Dave,

    Another way to look at the Lance Armstrong situation is this:

    If he’d go that far with the drug thing to win, how do I know he’s not cutting the course or breaking the rules otherwise while he’s racing? Xterra races don’t have cameras all over the course.

    I’m probably not going to pull out of a race because Lance is competing but I’d let the RD know that I don’t have any faith in the results as long as Lance is there.

    Does Lance affect me personally? No, not directly. But it’s an integrity thing. I compete fairly and I expect the rest of the field to do the same. I don’t want to be lumped together with Lance like “Oh he does triathlons. All those guys do drugs so Marc must do drugs too.”

    That’s the point.

  2. I agree with Roger in that Lance did nothing personally to me. My concern is the impact that people in his position have on how we define right and wrong. For instance, when people cheat but continue to prosper regardless of what they have done, how does a young mind or any for that matter process this?

    I feel a shift happening in our country where the lines of right and wrong are blurred. This worries me as I raise my kids and work to help define their character.

    Thanks for a great conversation on this issue.
