Definitely not perfect, could have done a better job with the volume levels on the videos versus my narration. Regardless, I think it is easily view-able and hopefully somewhat interesting to a wider audience than just those of us on this thread! If you feel so inclined, please share on social media!


I like the idea.... but sorry, it's not helpful and way too abstract for non-runners to get.

Talking age graded times is just confusing; non runners are going to tune out. I'm a runner and still find the AG odd and far from perfect. Do they mean Whitlock should have been able to beat elites in his prime? If my AG is 95%, does that mean that 1/20 people his same age should be able to beat me?

And singling him out for appearance isn't going to earn you points. Yes he's not super slim and not dressed the part, but he doesn't look unfit either.

The articles on Marathon Investigation are the best thing to spread.

Not interested in "earning points". Anyone with on iota of common sense can look at those pictures and realize that Frank Meza did not complete a world class performance, be it the clothes, the body build, stealthy appearance, etc. AG performance is pretty easy to understand too, didn't want to waste time in the video elaborating, most people can quickly comprehend a percent score and won't get hung up on questions like - "Do they mean Whitlock should have been able to beat elites in his prime?"

Yes, the articles on MI are probably the best thing to spread, but there is a large segment of folks that prefer video over reading something, so just hoping to create something for those types.
