RE: RIP: Former William & Mary star / 27:59 man Jonathan Grey has lost his battle with depression at age 29
Heartbreaking and incredibly sad news. I've been racing against Jon since high school, and by against, I should say Jon has been kicking my ass since high school. Jon was always a class act, and as ballsy a runner as I've ever competed against. It didn't matter who he was racing, he would run aggressively, push the pace, never back down.
I ran into him at the Mt SAC relays a few years ago, we were in the same heat of the 5k. We were in the warm up pen, and he said to me "how did you get into this heat?" , and I had to laugh. He wasn't being rude, just essentially warning me to stay off the front because it was going to be a fast race, and he knew I was no 13:30 guy.
I'll always remember Jon racing Craig Miller at the PIAA Championships, and watching him excel at William and Mary. I was always inspired by his performances and his guts, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. The community has certainly lost one of the better ones. RIP Jon.
