    All sorts of mixed messages there, but I'm glad she feels better. We all wish her the very best.
    I'm still a big fan.

    Mixed messages indeed! Mental health would have a field day. With the picture and the blurb. Narcissistic personality anyone?

    I found the picture interesting too. I follow her on Twitter (along with 7,000 other people), and I believe that in every one of her previous posts, if it had a picture at all, she was dressed quite modestly in either normal civilian dress or a track suit (not a singlet and shorts). This was the first time I recall seeing anything remotely resembling sexy. But then, again, the message was more personal than anything I remember. Her previous posts have been mainly routine messages about here mundane whereabouts and activities.

    I agree with Marlow. We all with her good luck in her personal struggles.

    That picture and her comments almost make me believe she is wanting her own "Basic Instinct" moment.

    Ditto. Not being a big fan of Facebook, it took something like this to make me check in. I hope that she is REALLY doing well. People still love her and screw the ones who were titillated by all of the disturbing stuff that came out a couple of years ago.

    She posted the terrible story on her Facebook about that Penn State runner (800 meter specialist Madison Holleran) who jumped to her death from a parking garage. Suzy has always been an advocate for suicide prevention programs.

    Sadly this story reminds me of the female distance runner who jumped from a bridge in Indy after running in nationals. I think that was back in the late 80's or early 90's. I've forgotten her name now.

    I admired Susy Favor's athletic talent and beauty from afar for years, culminating in sharing a seat with her on an athlete/official shuttle bus at Atlanta 96. Absolutely charming young lady. One of the saddest days of my life when her unimaginable story broke. I wish her well.

    Her older brother committed suicide. In my hometown. Jumped from the roof of a downtown hotel. IIRC, she was still in high school. Suzy has always been my favorite athlete, I followed her career close-up from high school on, she was a couple of years ahead of my kids from the same conference.

    I watched her in Atlanta during the '96 OT and also met Annette Peters (on the shuttle bus!) after the women's 5000 meter final. I had previously met Favor out in Hawthorne in 1991 at the nationals, where she and her Wisconsin teammates posed for pictures.
