These would seem to be the only two possibilities. No mentally intact person, no matter how loyal to Kip Litton, could believe that the man is innocent of what he's been accused of.

Jeeze - you have to wonder from his recent comments - Do you think Mr Baxley is mentally ill or is he possibly Kip himself?
One remote (?) possibility remains -- that Dan Baxley knows full well that Kip cheated his arse off, but also knows he can run under 3:30 for 26.2 miles on a course of his choosing, on a date of his choosing. This could mean six months from now on a course that drops 2,000 feet or something, and 3:30 pretty much sucks even for an old man. So it's worth considering that Dan Baxley has arranged to receive a sizable percentage of Kip Litton's $50,000 prize, should the Johnsons stupidly agree to this deal.
Regardless of the particulars, we really are dealing with shitbags and clowns here. I wonder in a vague way how this will all end, but hopefully that won't take much longer.
