An inspirational quotation on running by:
Get out well, but not too quickly, move through the field, be comfortable. Strategy-wise, go with your strengths. If you don"t have a great finish, you must get away to win. I"ve always found it effective to make a move just before the crest of a hill. You get away just a little and you"re gone before your opponent gets over the top. Also, around a tight bend, take off like holy hell. I"ve done that a number of times. You should not be flying down the home straight. Most of your efforts should have been put forth earlier.
John Treacy, Ireland"s two-time world cross country champion (1978, 1979)
WELL DONE to everyone who took
