dunno whats so funny about it though wrote:
as he said he only does it for fun
Definitely proof that Frank is acting very atypical of someone getting ready to run a 1:26 marathon at the age of 70! Is it proof that he cheated, no. We already knew he tended to start inconspicuously and the thought is he ducks off the course and gets on a bike or something. Unfortunately, you are allowed to start anywhere in the corral! Definitely this video evidence is great additional circumstantial evidence to add to the overwhelming evidence that shows Frank Meza is a cheater.

Someone posted that Frank Meza's athlinks would go private. My guess is that since Frank Meza did not have a profile set up on athlinks until after this thread came about......someone besides Frank set it up. They missed several of his earlier races which are still listed as unclaimed. Not sure why the Boston marathon is not one of Frank Meza's unclaimed results. Any runner who had hidden talent for the marathon, would seem to have had some of that potential show up at the Boston Marathon. Unless he intentionally jogged it. A slow jog at that.
I didn't write that. It was just someone impersonating me. I wouldn't use that language about anyone. I have no idea who Jesse is, nor do I care. It's a shame that this thread has become bogged down with hundreds of posts about some silly spat that, as far as I am aware, has no significant connection to the main topic. There are people who are coming to this thread to find out more about the Meza story, and they shouldn't have to wade through this extraneous nonsense.

I'm still pissed that this Jesse prick hasn't shown us his results yet he complains about Frank. Sorry, I don't see the difference.
Oh. I see. So, as a 65YO slow old fart, I can't complain about Frank, either? I was unaware of the street/track/trail cred requirement to post on LR. I don't see anyone else posting their elite/sub-elite times, polishing their nails, like morans. Give the guy a break. The thread is about the cheater, and shouldn't be anything more.

Looks like he ran a 20:25 5K in 2016, a very good time for his age I was curious how he could have cheated in a 5K
Ironically, it seems he didn't cheat nearly enough at this race for it to be believable. A 2:53 marathoner is capable of much faster than a 20:25 5k. This was just a marathon-pace training run for him (or practice for future "runs").
