Cross Country

Avery rues tentative tactics

Kate Avery came agonisingly close to completing an NCAA and European Cross Country double in Borovets last weekend.

The Iona Gael dominated the NCAA Division I Cross Championships in Terre Haute, Indiana three weeks ago.

In an interview with Jumping The Gun, Avery felt if she had a bit more confidence and hit the front earlier she would have added the European crown to her collection.

“Maybe had I been a bit more confident maybe I would have won because I felt good out there today,” said Avery who also discussed the difference in tactics between the collegiate championships and the Europeans.

Con Houlihan once told me that tomorrow is now. In taking on this venture I’ve started to try and put his words into action.

I worked for Con from 2007 till his passing in 2012 taking down his copy and a whole lot more. I have a Con Houlihan section which will go in to more depth on that.

I’m a long-time contributor to the Irish Runner magazine and am also working for the Irish Examiner.
