They will continue to monitor his physical levels throughout his marathon journey"
How do they fake the data when they are going uphill in the van between 5 and 5:55 mile pace at 7,000 feet?
the same Kipps who practises at the Putney Clinic, where Young gets his physio
The same clinic that has a page about 'Marathon Man UK' that was created on 15th April 2014 - amidst RY's first ever triple marathon! What a coincidence.
What does this mean? Is even this chutneyclinic in on the scam?[/quote]
My hypothetical explanation is that the whole RY 'Marathon Man' story/persona was carefully planned and executed from the start, long before the purported 'first ever marathon'. RY was an experienced runner and triathlete, not an elite athlete, but he had dabbled in 'charity fundraising' before. He hatched a plan with his close friends and local contacts to acquire sponsorship, build the 'Marathon Man' persona starting with the astonishing triple marathon. It was a win win for companies that supported him and helped build this image.[/quote]
I remember a hobby jogger friend of mine getting super excited after watching Dane speak at an event. She returned home with a signed copy of his book of course. I read the opening pages and I was done. There was a similar super hero story about him going for a massive long run out of nowhere and then repeating and ta-na! a super ultra runner is born. Dane's claims were much more believable of course but my point is Rob replicated the narrative to demonstrate he has super human abilities and can endure any associated pain because was abused. Low quality used car salesman with no documentation to back up his product.
