Suicide is a big problem in the military. I have a crew of about 300 Sailors, and in the past ~30 months I've had about 15 Sailors express varying degrees of suicidal ideations. I've had one Sailor commit suicide - on the ship at six in the morning. I watched him bleed out and washed the brain matter away, and have beat myself up over the 18 months since about how we could have stopped it.

I don't know you very well other than your posts here, and I admire you for keeping at running, but the drama - especially with respect to suicide comments - has got to stop. The race officials have a lot going on and given your past behavior (I recall you threatening suicide a few years ago as well) I really don't blame them.
