Wondering to myself, when there is so much evidence that Frank cheated, why does he not fess up? Guessing this is not an original thought, but it occurs to me that maybe the biggest hangup to coming clean is the confession he might have to make is to his wife! Putting myself in his shoes and assuming my wife didn't know I hadn't really been running exceptionally fast marathons for the past 10 years, but rather going to elaborate lengths to cheat in them, how devastating could coming clean be to that relationship? Contrary to what some might believe, I do not want to see Frank's life ruined and I can only hope that he has been honest with his wife and if not, she can forgive him when and if he ever does come clean.
I don't expect a confession from Frank anytime soon, if ever. Although there have been a handful of rare exceptions (such as Jane Seo), for the most part whatever mental warping causes Frank and his ilk to cheat in the first place -and revel in undeserved accolades- also makes truth anathema to them, even in the face of overwhelming, irrefutable evidence. These are some seriously twisted individuals. The desire to confess presumes something of a conscience and an accompanying sense of guilt, but anyone capable of such long-term, well-planned cheating and deception lacks those attributes and wouldn't have been cutting corses to begin with. That's why race cheaters continue to lie, lie, and lie again, and just dig themselves in even deeper. To this day, for instance, Rosie Ruiz will still insist that she legitimately won Boston and was robbed of the title she deserves.
