Quote Of The Day

"Why in the world did you think that you had to make the lies so big? Why did you have to involve the whole cancer community? Why did you have to use the power of your story to go after people who were trying to tell the truth?”

"I do think that psychologically for Lance, his cancer work allowed him to give his lies a lot of force. Because he could feel kind of righteous anger as he’s vilifying people publicly. Even though, of course, he’s telling a lie."

- Academy Award director Alex Gibney, the guy who previously did documentaries on Enron, Elliot Spitzer and US torture in Afghanistan, talking in a Q & A about his new documentary on Lance Armstrong, "The Armstrong Lie," which was screened this week. Initially, Gibney had produced a “Root for Lance!” documentary with a Matt Damon voice-over that had to be scrapped once it was clear Lance was a doper. Gibney reveals that he believes Lance admits in the film he doped at the 2009 Tour, which Lance still denies, as Lance says in the film he "intended" to be clean in 2009..

The Fight Back Against Competitor Begins... Boycott Rock N Roll Events

Competitor is dropping elite support but Pittsburgh Three Rivers Marathon, Inc., a nonprofit is upping support to $150,000 The non-profits goal is “promoting the love of running" not profits.

Boycott Competitor Events
LRC Editorial
No, Thank You: We Don't Need Competitor Running The Vast Majority Of Big Running Events In This Country The Competitor Group (Rock N Roll Races) has decided it does not want to give back to the sport of running despite receiving millions in public subsidies. It's time to boycott their events and support groups that give back to the sport. It would be WAY better if a non-profit, not a private equity fund, ran the big road races in the USA, but nothing will change unless YOU get involved and vote with your feet. Don't run their events and question their expansion into your city.
