"TBL contestant cheating on marathon?"
I found this thread on a triathlon training site I use occasionally and found it intriguing. About 3/4 of the way down is the whole story. Wow, I can't believe these guys would actually take a medal after not truely finishing a marathon, but taking a ride partway through. Not good.

I'd be curious to see if this is true or not, or if we see any footage of it.

I will say that I personally know Dane and his wife, I go to church with them, they live across the street from me, and they are most definitely NOT the type to compromise their integrity in this manner. They did in fact run the marathon on Saturday, and the BL crew was here to film on his progress.

If I obtain further info, I will provide.

That would be great if you do find out if either of them got into the van. I hope it's not true, but if it is, it's so frustrating for those who train their butts off to just finish and earn their medal (even in last place), rather than those who don't. If the race director deems it a DNF (did not finish) that would be the thing that makes it more real.

From personal experience, I did a 50k once, missed a turn which caused me to short the course 3 miles. Once I realized it, it was too far to go back, so I just finished my own race and told the RD at the end. I didn't get my finisher's plaque and the time was a DNF.

If one or both of these guys did take a van for even a part of the race, then they'll have to live with that themselves.

Saw this on another board. NBC issues an apology for misleading viewers.


I have tried to make a link... but hadn't figured out how yet. Sorry.

You can also go the MSNBC videos and hear Dane speak for himself. He was on the Today show Tues 3-3-09. Sorry, don't have the link!

I thinks it's a shame he accepted a medal. It undermines what others that actually finished the marathon accomplished.

And I'm sorry but going back later and doing the three miles is not finishing a marathon. I don't count every 26 miles that I walk as a marathon - I'd finish a marathon every 13 days.

I don't blame him for the whole time clock thing - that was obviously the producers.

I think it disappoints me more that he's making excuses, instead of saying "yeah, I screwed up and shouldn't have accepted that medal."
