RE: Frank Meza 2019 LA Marathon Cheater

The suggestion has been made before, and there's not actually much enthusiasm for it. We care about running and racing. The doctors of California will have to police themselves.

Do I care if a guy is cutting courses? Absolutely. Do I care if he's a fantastic doctor or a crummy one? No, not my beat.


I agree. Let’s stick to OUR knitting. If Derek and the LR Sleuths can make the sport better, we win. If we start going after people’s professional lives based on tenuous extensions (a running cheat MUST be a professional cheat or whatever), then we get into an unnecessary and dangerous territory. Why bother? Let the doctors police the doctors. At this point the powers that be in the medical world are probably aware of this issue. We need do nothing on that front.

Regarding the claim about his impossible 5k split: I think they took a split and subtracted time that he was standing still to determine a “running time” and the result was impossible. Give them credit for that.
