PS my soundcloud isn't working.

I wouldn't trade my life for gold because I wouldn't want to be known as a cheater. Another thing is that it wouldn't seem like I truly earned the gold medal, I would feel weird that I won gold by using PEDS. I would like to cherish my life instead of using PEDS. I think that it is stupid that people would trade their life for gold, I would NEVER do that. I would feel guilty for using PEDS.
