What I always loved about this sport was its simplicity. We used to say all you needed were some shoes and shorts, maybe sweatpants at times of the year, and you could make yourself as good a runner as possible. So I hate all the high tech stuff NOP does, legal or not, and I can't get really excited when any of them do well.
Nice attitude for a hobby jogger who runs for fitness.
Pros should be ASHAMED not to use every resource available to them within the rules.
