Thanks for continuing to follow this, and provide input about your experience with Rob. I posted my experience to get everyone's experience with him, and so far it seems I may be the only one with a negative experience. You bring up some questions about my story such as why I didn't flag down the RV, and as others have said, and I posted earlier, I tried to run up to the RV, they stopped, then drove away before I could talk to them. My purpose was not to call into question his history, or abilities. I just don't believe he is legitimately completing this attempt. Now, both Rob and myself are encouraging people to get out and run with him. So runners, get out there and see for yourselves!
Rob has asked why you would not make yourself known to the crew, why would you take the time to follow the van and not keep following it or stop the van and ask the relevent questions. He is very genuine and is happy to run with you and anyone else who cares to take the time to turn up. It does seem very strange that you have taken lots of time to start this whole thing and yet didn't follow up with more investigation. If I had gone out in the middle of the night and did what you had done I would have followed the van for ages, stopped them, asked questions, filmed the entire thing and actually made contact..
So, when he ran up to the RV and it drove off, he was just supposed to keep running and eventually catch up to it when it slowed or stopped miles later?
I'm sure at that point they would have woken Rob and he'd be running in front of it and they'd say "oh yeah, he's been running the whole time, you just didn't see him for some reason".
