I have done a lot of thinking lately about the performance enhancing scandals in sports. And I am wondering if PED's are really that bad.

As a 15:20-15:30 5k runner, I am now faced with the dilemma that no matter how hard I train, that at age 32 i will soon start to decline. It was always my goal to break-15 minutes, and on EPO (safe doses), I could feasibly do that. I have seen that with safe amounts of EPO, a 6% performance boost in running can be had in 4 weeks. What are your opinions on this. Would it be cheating, or using science to be the best that I can be?

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

That was perfect for this.

I want a PED requirement in MLB along with a lifting of the prohibition on aluminum bats and the replacement of all natural grass fields with artificial turf.

With that, that boring-@ss sport might finally be watchable again.
