Dude, relax. I think most of avid posters to this thread realize that it is not impossible to cheat your way through Boston and the other races; Singer may have laid that on a little thick. However, the combination of the "why" and the sheer effort to do it across the country and in races like Boston, is something to be considered. Congrats on following your boyfriend around for his 2:54, but I bet you did not bike right up to him by the chip mat for 15K which is basically on a causeway between two lakes, with few fans and a huge group of photographers; did you also bike right up into Wellsley to ditch your bike by the 13.1 mat while the 1:20 guys went past, because maybe it's doable, but stupid. I have not followed this too closely myself, so I could be easily missing finer points of his methods and the known facts, but driving Boston and hitting all the timing mats is generally out of the question, unless you have a very knowledgeble driver assisting you. Biking it is very doable, but the "why" takes on a new emphasis; we're talking serious psychological issues. This is how articles on Kip Litton and James Hogue make it into The New Yorker, not because a bunch of Let's Runners have a beef.
