Carey Pinkowski is the Executive Race Director of the 2014 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. A man with a life time of experience in the sport, from an elite high school runner, to a runner at Villanova, racing Division 1, to his twenty-five years as Executive Race Director of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.
I spoke to Carey on Friday, October 31, 2014, about twelve hours after I posted the first piece on Rita Jeptoo.
I asked Carey PInkowski to comment on the Rita Jeptoo situation, he gave me the following quote:
"This is the foundation of what World Marathon Majors advocates. Testing is part of our culture, and we have to respect that process. We completely support the process."
