I think in regard to the 3 initial marathons we can safely say the times these were completed in is very unlikely, he may have ran all 3 but a lot slower. Probably changed by the publisher to increase book sales and drum up hype.
If they were done in 5 hours a piece I'd believe it off of no training. He does however have some results that show he can run 3.20-3.30 back to backs but these were done a few months into his daily marathon runs.
Sorry, you can't be for real.
The man's story is complete bullshit, it's plain as day.
From personally knowing some of his friends and supporters - lovely people - I have to assume Mr Young is a very nice young man, but evidence suggests he's also likely something of a troubled fantasist.
The credulous people egging him on (and assisting him) really need to have a good look in the mirror and consider where this is all going; the potential for the inevitable opprobrium to leave a harmless and vulnerable loon in ruins is clear.
