Yes, and in some miraculous way, you pass 100's, if not 1000's of runners and end up stopping along the way, while not being recognized by one runner, ever!, for a wardrobe change. Yes, this is what we all do.
You passed people running unbelievable negative splits, while rarely hitting a mat or being in photos at certain check points and not one person that you allegedly passed remembers you blowing by them. Anyone running that fast for the 2nd half of a marathon would have dozens and dozens of people remember you. Of course, not one runner or spectator ever has and if "one" did, the lack of photographic evidence at certain check points would refute that.
People who raise money for charities are just the opposite and would want to record their progress and share it in this day and age of information technology, NOT hide it!!!!
If a runner stopped for a "wardrobe" change, someone would be there with camera asking how's it going, keep it up, get back in the race and pass a bunch of runners, etc...........................................
Your passing more runner theory is ridiculous. As mentioned, if you started in the back and passed that many runners and you legitimately ended up with a sub 3 hour time, how would you prove it? How do you get the money and who do you tell? How do you explain never being seen by anyone and not being in photos that EVERYBODY else is in?
Rational thinking people get it and most don't care. The irony is the few who have shown their lack of intellect combined with moronic genes to not be able to use simple reasoning.
Thank you and enjoy the show.
