Regarding the Strava data:

[quote] The Elapsed Time is longer than the running time hence breaks during the run, something "Lazarus Lake" of the Barkley marathon saw for himself. This means my actual running (moving) time is different than my actual Elapsed Time (overall time), the link you also show is a 3000ft decent (downhill running) during that period.

Is this a new excuse? Can anyone with more knowledge of the Strava data critique this? My understanding was that while there are breaks recorded in the data, Strava also captures segments of continuous efforts.[/quote]

He conveniently didn't mention that the first 6 miles of that 2:30 marathon were uphill going from 8500' to 9400' in 6:01, 5:47, 6:00, 6:01, 6:14, 6:29. Yes, the rest was mostly downhill, but if you've ever run uphill at 9000' you would know those splits are not remotely possible for an unacclimated runner of his ability who is used to sea level. He would be absolutely gassed trying that first split alone.

Also, in that same strava data, he covered at least 13.1 non-stop because strava gave him a best effort half marathon of 1:12 in it.

Also, he got a best effort 2-mile effort (10:32) and one mile (5:00) allegedly running uphill in this strava data. Claiming "elapsed time" can't sweep those best efforts under the rug.

And his claims that it's difficult to upload the data with a 2 man crew are ridiculous. The girl currently running across the US has no problem doing it. Also, he had no problem logging data for the first 3 days or the last 5 days when he was observed. Funny how it's only in the west at night when no one is watching that data goes missing and is altered and is ludicrous.
