RE: Frank Meza 2:53:10 at LA Marathon (70 years old) unoffical time (just finished)
Just from my half marathon experience. Truthfully, these splits times are extremely questionable. (if accurate) Even impossible. After watching the 2018 web cam LA marathon, I must say that was not what I expected Frank to run like. He looked slow around a bunch of slow goofy looking and not too serious runners. It made no sense whatsoever for 2:56 marathoners. Frank did finish 103rd in this race. Who are all these runners. The clothes thing and bib looked very suspect. Who finishes a race this way. Adding seconds to the time. Are you allowed in a marathon like this to have a friend give you extra clothing during the race if you get cold? Maybe he took it off to make sure his finish picture would get taken. It hit me that if Frank is working with an accomplice, they would need to switch fast, as in a bib on a removable belt. It looked like he is caught in the act on this video. Would need to blow it up to see better. This would have been very bold. You could actually look at Frank's gun times and find someone who also crossed a mat at the same gun time and see if someone else is running nearby with his bib, (not likely) or no bib. Especially if it happened at two or more spots. My guess is the accomplice would be running most of the race. Yes I am playing devil's advocate. But this is a search for the truth. And, I agree you do not break world record times and not expect to have some attention. (and scrutiny)
