RQ Library: “The Runner” by David Samuels

What would you do differently if you could do it all again? That’s what James Hogue thought when he created the identity of Jay Huntsman when he was 26. The ’16 year old’ Huntsman won the Stanford Invitational before being busted by someone he competed against when he was really in high school. He then went on to create the identity of Alexi Indris-Santana and got into Princeton, where again, he ran on the team before getting outed again.

In 2001, David Samuels wrote this article about Hogue for The New Yorker, which was intriguing enough that it was turned into a book. Jesse Moss went on to produce the documentary, “Con Man,” for HBO, about Hogue.
