    "Who travels from Toronto to Montreal to run a SC? I will tell you who - "serious" athletes.
    all I'm saying is enough of this "I wasn't serious about running" BS"

    And an 11:29 to boot!!

    What was she in the early 2000s - 2:12/4:28? She went 2:02/4:07 by her mid thirties.

    I guess she got just a little* more serious since having all those years off.

    (*Sarcasm).

    "Wait a min, the article reads at age 21 she quit the varsity team during her second year after injuries and burnout sapped her love for the sport.

    so burnout at 21 but "started serious running at 30""


    Well, ya got me!! Only serious people get injuries/burnout. I got nothin.

    (As the greenthumbs pile up on your epically inciteful post, please tell me how 4:28 and 4:07 after a long layoff compare in levels of seriousness.)

    She was probably running at quite a young age if she experienced burnout at the age of 21. But many people have fallen back in-love with the sport after burnout. The Youtuber, "Emma Abrahamson" is a great example of this.

    "And how do her times from that era compare to what she did after her long break from the sport? (At keast ine person in this thread has raised suspicions because of her emergence as a top athlete in her thirties. Clearly they are not paying attention to the main storyline, and I'm very surprised to add that neither are you, Steve.)"


    You wrote that "...she started serious running at 30..."
    I provided information suggesting she did some serious running before the age of 30, some of which I witnessed in 2003. Minor note, I may be wrong about ROY, but see that she was OUA XC All-Star in 2001.
    That's all; please don't read more into my post than what I wrote.

    Seriousness is measured in how often and how hard you train not how fast you run. kid (a) trains 16 days all year and gets on the podium at OFSAA kid (b) trains 6 days a week x 36 weeks and does not make the final which on is "serious"?

    you and I don't see eye to eye on the whole serious thing.

    Well, I would argue that a particular person training to get to 4:07 in their 30s vice training to get to 4:28 in early 20s involves different levels of seriousness. I stand by my comment that she really didn't start serious running (relatively speaking, I admit) until her 30s.

    Someone said "I've run those times". So have I. Let's make threads about each other.

    i trained 7 days a week. did all my workouts/runs. weights/core. i never took it "seriously", putting my all into it and my results suffered for that. being there for runs/workouts doesnt make you serious. a mindset does. just because she was training full time younger doesnt mean she was serious

    So if she runs a marathon PR in her 40's will you then say she started "super serious" training in her 40's? Or perhaps even "super duper serious training"

    "Blah blah blah"


    If she runs a Marathon PR in her 40s (which I fully expect that she will !!....Thank you Budster for your most excellent and informed prediction) I will once again re-state that she did not begin serious training (relatively speaking) until her 30s.

    We can keep doing this until she runs that Marathon, if you wish.

    Next?

    Let's be real here. Gollish is confident and, at times, brash. That personality is accepted and even admired in countless male track athletes in our sport; but because she is female - AND a high achiever, both on and off the track - people (men) feel need to take her down a few notches.

    If you took the same sum of her character and achievements and applied it to a male distance runner, they would be praised to no end. Instead, because she is a female distance runner, she has to deal with the insults and insecure ramblings like the ones posted here.

    SPOT ON! I would only specify that it is usually INSECURE males who pound on women for behavior they admire in men.

    Gollish has pissed off her teammates numerous times. One example is when she put up a funding page for training and competing expenses for Rio 2016. Some of her teammates donated not knowing she drives a 2-door Audio sports car and her parents are/were both doctors. Dad retired as a Orthopaedic surgeon at Sunnybrook and mom is Vice-Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at UofT.

    To be honest, if a male acts the way Gollish does, that would not be an athlete I would praise to no end. I don't think I've seen any athletes act the way she does.

    I used to be intrigued when I saw Gollish's name on the start list of a race but now the most likely outcome seems to be her DNS or DNF.

    Exactly. Now her performances are overhyped and full of excuses and dnfs. It gets old.
