Tuohy will get way more notoriety from trying to break every college record. 1500 thru 10k... Then becoming a semi elite pro and not being able to even beat the best USA runners for the next 2 to 3 years
It's going to be a while before she can beat monson and the top 1500 meter runners so
I see her competing in cross-country next year and then indoors and then maybe redshirting outdoors to try to make the us team
Then she would still have another full year, 3 seasons!
Where she could try to break the 1500 m outdoor record... Assuming she gets the 5K outdoor record this year and sets the indoor 5K record next winter...
I mean realistically what could she do for the 2024 Olympics?
And what's she going to do as a pro in short-term?
It would seem that being the best ever at the NCAA would bring a lot more eyeballs than finishing third to other Americans?
Also can team cross country 3peat and then 4peat? Much more excitement and sponsorship interest!!!
