I just arrived into Denver, where the weather is not looking great. This is bad news as I have booked a Harley Davidson for a day at the end of the ACSM meeting. It is my first time at ACSM and I am really looking forward to it. I have heard so much about this meeting over the years. As always at science/medical meetings, I spend most of my time listening and trying to make sense of it all.  Our session is invited by the ACSM and is about Gene Doping. The panel includes Gary Wadler from New York Medical School, Olivier Rabin from WADA and is Chaired by Stephen Roth at the University of Maryland.

After this, I conclude my USA whirlwind trip and look forward to getting back in the UK for a while. First thing to do - besides marking, etc - will be to obtain a China tourist visa for Beijing in the summer. I gather they can take some time to obtain.
