This is not my job. I don’t get paid for it. A lot of people don’t even know I’m a runner.

Meza is quoted as saying:

 “I took up running for fun. What I can tell you is that I did not cut. My last few marathons I have had to step off the course, looking for a place to pee. I didn’t know this was against the rules, I was not aware of that. I’ve done this several times. I’ve realized my problem is that I don’t hydrate properly. I have never cut the distance but I have stepped off of the course.”

Frank’s statement marginalizes the evidence and Canadian Running Magazine did little to counter his statement.

We’ve decided to take a different tact: Next time Frank runs one of our races there will be an official observer in place. This is a great opportunity for him to confirm his past performances and end the conversation.
