Somebody forgot to tell Rob that if he was going to make this look legit, he needed to get out of the RV every 9-10 miles and walk throughout the night. As mentioned previously the walking breaks stick out like a sore thumb on the day he started. (because he was really running) And then they show up again a few days after Asher. (because he was really running). Then when the geezers show up it is mostly walking.

No Ultra guy has a solid pace throughout an ultra run. Much less a transcon run. Ultra guys WALK A LOT!


Any LRC folks have a TomTom? What happens when you "Sync to Strava" from the site? Will Strava identify the device as TomTom?

When you download GPX then upload it? What does Strava show for device then?

Curious to what extent he manipulated these? Clearly there is no HR/cadence which is to be expected, right? Are those purposely stripped do you think, or did he figure out that GPX files would simply not contain that info, instead of TCX or linking to TomTom?
