I drink a lot of coffee before a race, will I test positive too for performance enhancing drugs?

It's store brand coffee, so I think I'll get away with it.

    No, you'll be fine. I think the International Olympic Committee (IOC) took caffeine off the banned list in 2004, and good thing too - some sports are so boring that even the spectators need performance-enhancing drugs! There's no way I could watch cricket (five full days of guys in white pants strolling around on grass...a bit like a televised marathon picnic) without lots of coffee.

    Caffeine is a performance enhancing drug, I would say you would have to drink gallons of coffee before it comes up in a test. I would suggest look in you athletic federation' s rule book and find out how much caffeine you are allowed to have in your system before it is considered "illegal" if you are that concerned. Caffeine pills would probably come up in a drug test.

    Store brand coffee contains 3% hog anus according to John Stossel.

    Doesn't drinking all that coffee give you cramps while running and make you have to pee?

    And to answer your question....even if you 'get away with it' you will always be running from your conscious...and that is one race you just can't win.

    No. Caffeine is not a performance enhancing drug. You're good to go!

    a gallon of coffee just might show up. Much less than that and you are good.
