Follett Featured In Runners World
Senior cross country All-American Katie Follett has a lengthy chat with Runners World now up on their website. Follett talks about the current state of the top-ranked Huskies, her training regimen and future in the sport, and how she has been able to go from a solid high school runner to a five-time All-America collegian.
Follett will lead the Huskies to Springfield, Ore. this Saturday for NCAA West Regionals at the Springfield Country Club.
Here's an excerpt, where Follett talks about the pressure of holding the No. 1 ranking:
"KF: Most of the pressure comes from what we put on ourselves. We put a lot of pressure on ourselves because we want to work really hard and we want to run well and every single girl on the team wants to reach her potential. And if we put that together, we know we can count on each other every time we step on the line, that every single person is going to give 100 percent. And that's the kind of pressure I think we feel, more than the bullseye that's on our back."
