For me, it would be a quality-of-life question, not a performance issue. If the HGH weren't so expensive, I'd probably continue with it, at least until I had a good reason not to, like some new evidence that it makes you grow extra ears. (The side effects of HGH are reportedly mild—one is fluid retention.) If nothing else, it helped my eyesight, and I had more energy. Lately, I've been reading studies about how endurance athletes suffer from low testosterone, which leads to early signs of osteoporosis, so I'm going to continue to monitor my levels and, if they drop too far, consider boosting them with the cream.
With the EPO, even if somebody gave it away, I wouldn't go down that road. Using it is too much of a literal and figurative headache, and if you get sloppy there's always the danger of nasty results. And I would never touch steroids again, unless I had some specific medical need. It's all just too powerful, too strange, and it's hard to read a list of the side effects and not feel like you're playing Russian roulette.
As for the larger issue of drugs in sports, eight months in the world of the artificially enhanced convinced me more than ever that it's critical for an organization like the World Anti-Doping Agency to succeed. This group, founded after the Salt Lake Olympics by Canadian anti-doping leader Dick Pound, represents the most serious international attempt to come to grips with sports doping. WADA is the logical response to an argument that gets aired from time to time: that since cheating is impossible to eliminate, the only recourse is to simply legalize everything—that way, no athlete has a hidden advantage over another, since everyone would be free to try anything that might increase endurance.
Like a lot of powerfully bad ideas, that one has a certain mad logic. But it would turn every sport into a test of how much damage an athlete was willing to risk to improve performance, and would basically force every serious athlete to cheat and risk his or her health. Athletic contests would have a strange life-or-death quality. If we don't keep drugs out of these events, they become freak shows, the athletes like gladiators—with us playing the role of decadent Romans, urging them on.
Besides, on a fundamental level, drugs ruin the simple joy of competition. With drugs in the mix, it's not about the athletes, it's about the chemistry.
Now that I was off the program, I started to think about what I'd train for next. Probably something shorter than the PBP—say, the Canadian Ski Marathon, a two-day, 100-mile event. I got a calendar out and began to work on the training schedule. I'd done the race before and knew it would be long, cold, and brutal.
Sounded fun to me. And this time I'd do it on my own.

I asked Catlin to check if Amazon has allowed the products back yet again. Sure enough, Amazon continues selling dangerous steroids and stimulants banned in sports and at least one drug regulated by the DEA, M-Drol , which contains the anabolic steroid methasterone. It is illegal to sell methasterone without a prescription and a DEA license. The DEA warned about methasterone in 2011, and this specific product has been recalled , yet it keeps making its way back onto Amazon. Amazon also trades in many compounds that are dangerous to the human body and banned by anti-doping agencies but aren’t yet illegal. One example is trenavar, marketed as TR3N , which is a “prohormone” that the body converts into another active compound. That compound is trenbolone, a DEA-controlled anabolic steroid. There’s nothing unusual about prodrugs as pharmaceuticals. We use many prescription prodrugs in daily medical practice, all regulated by the FDA, that become active only when processed inside the human body . That the DEA can’t easily regulate prodrugs of scheduled substances like trenbolone is simply an artifact of the outdated legislation that created the agency.
