Sasha Gollish won the Rock ‘n Roll San Antonio Half Marathon on Sunday, December 2, 2018 in 1:13.35.
This was a bit of redemption for a year that has been, well, less than optimal. Last weekend, Gollish was nearly trampled at the Canadian XC Champs and DNFed. The half win has put her on the right track, once again, one month out from the Houston Marathon. Sasha was ebullent post event, as the feeling of a good event when one has had unsatisfactory competitions really changes one’s view.
Sasha Gollish runs for Skechers Canada. She is known as a 1,500m athlete, who has ventured up to the roads. A light stride, Gollish took the lead, and she built a lead of over 90 seconds over Alia Gray and a returning Kara Goucher.
A good memory, Sasha reminded me that she had raced in San Antonio in 2015, and I had interviewed her post race those three years ago. Special thanks to Brian Eder, partner at runblogrun, who produces our audio series.
