      Does anyone else find the rule-mongering around what is essentially a silly event to be somewhat counter-intuitive?

          Silly? I think it should be an Olympic event. There could be a whole category of events done while trying to finish off a certain amount of a drug.

           

          The 6-hour Acid Amble.

           

          The One-Prescription Pharmaceutical 50k.

           

          The Toke 10k.

           

          The Peyote Run Around The Sweat Lodge 1000 Lapper.

                  BUT HOW DO WE KNOW THAT TRACK WAS EVEN REGULATION??

                   

                  Also, uh, yeah a bit.

                   

                  Though the headline implies more controversy than actually exists.

                   

                  Its great that the beer mile made the WSJ and NYT. So there's that.

                  Runners run.
