Chess with Tiny Overlord

It’s been too long since I last played chess with Josie. She did not have the patience for it even 6 months ago. Today she did very well.

Honest Athlete FAQ

Honest Athlete

Who/What is Honest Athlete?

We are a network of athletes working to identify and expose egregious/serial cheaters in endurance sports.


It is offensive to everything that these sports are supposed to be about. The goal is to deter the offensive behavior and force races, timing companies and sanctioning bodies to do their jobs.

What’s Next?

“Race Buster” has identified and been investigating a serial course-cutter. We should have a vetted article out in early August.

What is your policy on internet shaming and trial by internet?

It is a work in progress, but generally speaking you will be named if:

  • You are trading on your athletic results in any serious way (including social capital)
  • You are a serial cheater
  • You use illicit results to get on the podium, or qualify for events such as Boston or Kona

Follow-Up on San Diego Triathlon Cheating

Honest Athlete

It has been approximately a week since the story on Anita, and it went viral to say the least. Thousands of shares, many thousands of views, thousands of comments: Marathon Investigation, Pathetic Triathlon Group, Slowtwitch, Letsrun, Reddit, Triathlon Magazine. It was even translated into other languages, including Polish for obvious reasons. There was predictable trolling on Anita’s public Facebook and Strava pages, and just as predictably she reacted with…well, enough crazy, hate and racism to fill another couple of articles. I won’t be doing follow-ups on these, but one thing that did come out after the article was her final insulting (yet extremely entertaining) excuse:
She seems to finally admit cutting the course here (although she swears again later she did the whole course). Then as late as yesterday she is suggesting that someone else changed her Garmin file…California maybe!?

San Diego Triathlon – Cheating DQ

Honest Athlete

Here at Honest Athlete we attempt to expose cheating in endurance sports, and hold egregious and serial cheaters accountable. I can’t think of a better person to start with than Anita Carcone. I became aware that Anita had participated in the San Diego International Triathlon on June 24th in the 45-49 age group, and was making numerous claims on social media about besting all women in the bike split (including the pros), and falling just 3 minutes behind the top male pro!

Having some familiarity with this race and the level of competition, I found these claims to be unlikely, and therefore decided to see if Anita had posted the race to Strava. Surprisingly, I found that she had, and unsurprisingly, it was immediately clear that she had cut the course. Here is the portion of her flyby at approximately mile 8.5 of the course, where athletes are supposed to…
