Matthew Gibney Reflects On His 2011 Outdoor Season
Matt Gibney sums up his three-race post NCAA tour (two slows -- Jersey and Victoria -- and a fast -- Vancouver), his upcoming two-week hiatus (featuring breweries and fattening food) before starting the slow buildup of base miles for cross country season. Gibney is optimistic because (a) unlike previous years he enters the midsummer healthy and (b) he anticipates a strong Villanova cross country team for the fall. The addition of Ryan Sheridan (transfer from Iona) is mentioned explicitly, as well as his own chance -- being healthy in July for the first time since arriving at Villanova -- to get strong enough to make a real contribution to the cross country squad.
