RE: Earlier races
This just looks all around goofy. Can a 19:15 really get you 6th place in a 5K with over 10000 finishers?

Assuming it can, how the hell could you run that fast while trying to pass thousand of people in a 5K.

Everything points at cheating in almost every race review in detail. But, it is possible to start way back in a small marathon and pass everyone. I don't buy in in a race that lasts only 5K with this many finishers.

Here are some more back-of-the-pack starts with decent placements:

2) Detroit Free Press 5K (10/29/06)

2:18 start delay. 19:15. 6th of 10726 finishers. Masters winner. Start delay is more consistent with those finishing at 28 minutes and slower, not someone trying to win the masters division.
