Daily Inspiring Message

Posted: October 5, 2007 in Inspiring Message

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)
