Gawd, I need to get some work done next week. Please, I hope he quit. Plus, pretty sure laz owns him now. The kind, tough-loving father he never had. In some ways, it's a golden opportunity for this guy to straighten up, but I'm betting he gets back in the RV with Dustin and it's back to reassuring his fans and scheming their next con.

tracker's off. They may not be at Golden Corral anymore. Maybe back to McD

Did they delete this? I can follow the link and see it but it doesn't come up on https://www.facebook.com/marathonmanuk/ if you just load his main page. Is our celebration premature?

Kevin O'Rourke and Tom Crockford (the correct one) need some scrutiny. We should also look into these charities.
So guys, who we tracking on Monday?
Still works for me.

You bet they'll blog about it. They have the injury as their golden excuse. Maybe they'll turn it around and say they planned to run with the toe injury but didn't realize the seriousness of the cellulitis, and then will have to go to the Mayo Clinic or equivalent. They have a vested interest in keeping the con going, and that means appealing to the fans. They won't get us sh1te in terms of data -- we don't exist to them and they will never acknowledge us directly. They will have to address media, but when asked tough questions they will dodge it, say they shared the data and reference the video and photos of their TomTom page they already published, and then turn it on the haters who are trying to steal from the children.

It will be interesting if they ever update the blog with a description of and reason for the end. I personally doubt it. They probably want this to fade and everyone forget about it.
That's what a separated man also says. Even if his ex-wife bangs another guy.

I don't understand why everyone seems to think that this is over. RY hasn't said that it is over, has he? It is still on until either RY says it is over or the time of the current record has been exceeded.

C'mon over to our thread. The 12 of us have no friends anymore.

back to rupp and centro I guess. Maybe the poster who is going to the transcon beer mile run? that oughta be fun. hopefully it will be better documented with strava and he will wear a catheter so we can measure the flow.
220ish is not world class (for a man at least)

From Laz on Facebook
Unfortunately it's obvious he did cheat. He was posting world record distance times when not being watched and now he has been watched he struggled to manage half that distance and has picked up an injury. Some people will not look at the evidence or not have the experience in this sport to know what is and not possible pace early in the race. Showboating by watching movies and sight seeing after a 80 mile day in record time. Now 60 miles and not capable of even having time to rest.
It's such a shame as he is a nice guy and has plenty of guts and potential but has tarnished his credibility. His only hope if he thinks he has not cheated is to provide the watch and gps data from the run's but I doubt that will ever happen now his run is over and his hopes of the record gone.
Also it will be interesting to see if he takes the team up on their offer to compete in a 10 day race alongside other runners and prove his ability he "showed" in the first 2 weeks when he was elite world class pace.
I think I need to enter some ultra races. Does anyone know if there is any money in it?
You should give the Transcon a go and see if you can maintain the miles per day that RY was claiming, day after day after day, west of the Mississippi. The effort claimed was indeed exceptional and would only be possible by someone with world class ability which is why the ultralist and team geezer started questioning it in mid May.
Good night Rob - it's over buddy!
You can track me, but my data loads as soon as I get close to my phone. LOL
So guys, who we tracking on Monday?
