Menthol aided running?

Seth Yarbrough

Seth Yarbrough is a rarity among runners.  He smokes before races.  Saturday Seth was  competing in the  Isaiah 53:5K  Relay For Life in Rockmart,  Georgia.  He says he regularly smokes a menthol cigarette before racing to open his breathing passages.  The Georgian tells me he doesn’t suffer from asthma and is not a regular smoker.   After the race,  Seth said it didn’t work as well for him Saturday as it usually does.  He was expecting to run the 3.1 miles in about 26 minutes, but the clock showed 31+ when he crossed the finish line.  The race was to benefit the American Cancer Society  It warns that smoking is one of the leading causes of lung cancer.
