Just want to add that my husband is a marathoner too, and when he saw the results of Dane's "marathon" he was flabbergasted. He said "No way." My husband is in the military and in pretty damn good physical shape and he still has yet to break the 4 hour mark in his first 3 marathons. We did a little digging on the internet that night and it didn't take long to discover the truth. Anyone with an ounce of integrity wouldn't have agreed to a ride in the van, no matter for what distance or for what filming deadline. You don't put the medal around your neck unless you earn it. Shame on NBC, especially to insinuate that they didn't know it wasn't true.
