Is Johnny Manziel’s Wife The Latest To Be Exposed As A Road Race Cheat? Yes, We Think She Is
Bre Tiesi-Manziel claims to have run a half marathon with no prep in exactly two hours. The problem for her is her chip didn’t record an 11 mile split and and for her to finish with that time she’d have had to run the final 6.7 miles at 4 minute mile pace.

The LetsRun.com community has outed what looks like another road race course cutter and this time is is Bre Tiesi-Manziel — wife of former Texas A&M QB star Johnny Manziel. History has shown us with the likes of Kip Litton, Mike Rossi, and Robert Young, that in this day and age of chip timing, if you cheat in a road race, there is a high chance you are going to get exposed.
Earlier this afternoon, a LetsRun visitor posting under the unregistered name of “ridiknick” posted that Bre’s splits from Divas Half Marathon on February 16 defy logic. That poster is correct.
According to the race’s timing website, Bre covered the first 6.4 miles in 1:31:29 (14:15 per mile). She didn’t record an 11-mile split but ended up at the finish (13.1094 miles) in 1:58:22. That defies logic. That would mean that Bre ran the final 6.7 miles of the half marathon in 26:54 — which is faster than any human has ever run for 6.7 miles as it averages out to be 4:00.7 per mile pace.
Since the course map (h/t harambe) reveals that the 6.4-mile split is very close to the finish line, we imagine Mrs. Manziel just decided to take a shortcut so she could celebrate with some wine:
