Doctor patient confidentiality agreement?
I tried to blog about credit card fraud once but no one seemed interested.

There is a very narrow frame of reference when doctors start talking about lifesaving cardiothoracic surgery. Runners bring to the table all of their life/work experiences in a relatable, familiar dialect... man, that 10K was a bear! Sure, your bear of a 10K might be ten minutes faster than mine (ok, twenty minutes faster), but we can all relate to the pain, misery and joy of the race and all the prep leading up to it. I must admit that I personally enjoy hearing about lifesaving cardiothoracic surgery, but thats just me.

I wasn't trying to be smug with my comment. My neighbor is a sports Doctor and I try to get him to talk about work related things all the time and he kind of shuts down. I think Doctors are just trained to not talk about their work too much to avoid saying something they shouldn't.

We all have talents and a part to play in life, perhaps some of these people realize this and prefer not to draw attention to themselves. I don't know..

HIPAA, PHI, etc. A good doctor isn't going to talk much about what they are doing, especially on a blog. Even in my clinical trials work, I'll talk about what is going on in private conversations, but I'd never write about it on the internet. That would break all sorts of disclosure agreements.
I still think endurance is a great virtue!
