Hayley said “Watching yesterday’s race back, it doesn’t seem real to be given the opportunity to run with the best British 5,000 metre runners on home turf but THEN to come in the top 10 (and laughing with you, see above).”
After coming 9th modest Hayley joked by saying “not bad for a marathon runner.”
She is a local athlete who runs for Birchfield Harriers and is coached by Dan Robinson and takes Sports Psychology advice from Prof. Andy Lane at Wolverhampton University where she works full-time.

Hayley has been running for only around 3 years. You may remember Hayley from the Virgin London Marathon in April. Good Luck Hayley for your future races.
