|Subject: ||RE: Fagan comes clean on his positive EPO test|
I read the whole thing wrote:
He didn't have to take epo, and then get caught to stop running.
Rationally, obviously not. But Fagan wasn't rational. Obviously the pressure and mental hurdles that come with high level running made it so he couldn't just quit (in his mind).
Its like Alberto Salazar's quote when his career went south "I hated running. I hated it with a passion. I used to wish for a cataclysmic injury in which I would lose one of my legs...then I wouldn't have to torture myself anymore".
Not excusing Fagan, doping is wrong. But understand that things can be more complex than face value.
