Kip Himself Posting on Forum?

These are all from the current thread on Kip Litton:

SPECIAL NOTE:  Some of these posts, such as the RN Runner one below, are discussed specifically in Mark Singer's recently published article about Dr. Kip Litton in the New Yorker titled Marathon Man, (published on July 30, 2012 -> August 6th cover date of New Yorker magazine)

Email from "old acquaintance" of Kip's

Good Morning Blogger:

I ran across your blog on Kip Litton and almost fell out of my seat.  I was looking up old acquaintances on the internet when it lead me to an article in a Flint paper.  I saw Kip’s name, read the article, looked at the times and couldn’t believe it.  The Kip I remember was very, very lazy.  I checked everything again:  Dentist, Lapeer, 48 years old, wife Lisa, etc. sounded like the same guy. How could he run so many marathons at 6:30 pace,be so consistent and not start running until 40 with no previous running history?  I swam in college and have observed several former swimmers compete in masters competition with great success after long layoffs but they were also high level college athletes before the long layoff.  I knew Kip and Lisa from the Amway Business 20 years ago (that says something right there).  Then I saw it, the word “Cheat”.  I found your blog and read through it – WTF?????  Who would do such a thing?   Why?  What purpose would it serve?     Is it possible this entire thing is a joke he is putting over on everyone?

Please respond – I am curious.  My wife is going to love to hear this one.

Best Regards
