Subject: RE: Fagan comes clean on his positive EPO test
While not on the same scale, this reminds me of friends who've said they wish they would be fired from a job they detested rather than quitting. Somehow it's easier to have it taken away from you rather than walking away...as if the hard decision is made for you...
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.[/quote]
