"The Doper Next Door"
By Jenn Fields firstname.lastname@example.org
I've tried a lot of new things since becoming the outdoor recreation reporter. I've gone fly fishing, stand-up paddleboarding. I've taken (a humiliating) lactate-threshold test and tried to improve my form on telemark skis (fail!).
I haven't tried doping.
But Andrew Tilin has, and he'll be at the Boulder Bookstore tonight talking about his book "The Doper Next Door: My Strange and Scandalous Year on Performance Enhancing Drugs."
Tilin, a fortysomething journalist, father and amateur bike racer, started out hoping to write about an average-joe cyclist doper.
"Testosterone is reportedly a billion-dollar industry," he said. "So I'm wondering, well, who's taking all of this stuff? I went looking for a citizen doper, someone who would tell me his or her story."
