Terrible and tragic
RE: 2:53:10 at LA Marathon unoffical time (just finished)

Internet is the worst thing to happen to mankind wrote:

Doc killed him self today. Cheater or not a cheater, was this worth it? You all figured out he cheated in his races and got got him dq’d. Honestly, as someone familiar with USATF rules and a fellow marathon runner, thank you? But also, get lost .

DQs from the marathons weren’t enough, so you went to the news. Then the national news. Then you questioned his friends, family, teammates, professional achievements? Then you wouldn’t stop until “the world knew of his treachery..” Like little toddlers, when you didn’t get the attention you wanted, you all screamed louder.

Doc cheated in many marathons, but he NEVER dropped to the level you guys have here.

Second note: You asked where all the “LHS cubs are” in all this, and how “they boys must be in on it?” ....well ask yourself this. How would 14-18 year old boys, who train for at most the 5k, have any understanding of what it takes to run a marathon? Or why didn’t you understand when Scott Dominguez and other people close to the LHS program said that they “loved doc” and “couldn’t believe the allegations?” Can nice people not have hidden flaws or demons.

To what extent is it too much?


In hindsight, it was not worth it. Feel terrible about this tragic turn.
