For those who don’t have FB, can someone paste the text?
I’m assuming this is John Gray the ultra runner. He’d been tearing it up lately, so this is mind boggling for those who don’t suffer from depression. Suicide is very sad (and for some, infuriating) no matter the person’s age or reasons.
As others have said, if you’re contemplating suicide (even a tiny bit) talk to someone. Anyone. Even a stranger.
Not the trail runner who has been tearing up the mountain scene, Jon was an excellent track and xc runner. Jon won USATF XC once and runner up in SF a couple years ago. Nice guy. Very sorry and saddened to hear this news.
Editor's note: Jon won USAF Club XC in 2011.
