I try to address a variety of topics at my humble blog; race results, training, trivia, and more. Posts on such topics get consistent albeit unspectacular traffic to the site. As you might expect, when I write about topless cyclists or other such salacious content, traffic goes up. But by far my greatest traffic comes on days when I post about cheaters. (The Open Letter to a Cheater post still has the house record.)
I like blog traffic. But I love dogs, so it's with great sadness that i must report the actions of Dozer, the 3-year old Goldendoodle who was seen crossing the finish line at the Maryland Half Marathon in 2:14:24. The full report can be read here. Sadly, it seems that Dozer has now been accused of cutting the the course. Apparently he ran out of his yard near mile 5 and joined the course there. Along the way, he drank water on the course (which is a cardinal sin if you're a bandit). He was even witnessed crossing the finish line and accepting a "finisher's medal.
The best cyclist in U.S. history is suspected of doping. The best bodybuilder in history is a known doper and now a known groper. But now it's man's best friend who is accused of cheating. Is nothing sacred?
***Addendum***. It seems that Dozer even has a Facebook fan page and is raising money for Cancer research. Bark on with your bad self, Dozer.
