Fot those of you who keep posting the same old garbage repeatedly in a desperate attempt to extend this charade, you're better off trying a different approach. I have lived in the same general area as Dr. Litton all my life and have many common acquaintances. Many have seen this thread and it has been talked about extensively.
The over-riding opinion is that there are too many people that have seen him run similar or better times in training and at races. They simply don't believe that Dr. Litton or anyone else would cheat to run race times that are slower than they are capable of. This general feeling is further bolstered by the fact that Dr. Litton has had a sterling ethical reputation for over 20 years.
I am from the same general area too. There have been several well respected people who have come onto this thread to discredit Dr. L. They have worked for decades to build their reputations in the running community, and wouldn't throw that all away over this guy. I've never met Dr. L., and probably never will. I have however, personally met people (race directors) who have DQed him from races. They are professionals, and take their jobs very seriously.
