Hayley Long Wins Gold At Alabama State Games

Jack Daniels Training Plan customer Hayley Long is finishing up her third training plan. While following her latest 10k plan from Jack she decided to jump in the 1500 at the Alabama State Games. Why not? She won the Gold Medal and is now 7th in the country in the W40 division!

On a day where temps reached 107 degrees on the track Hayley ran 5:45 in her FIRST 1500M run ever! [Rankings] So…add in an actual 1500M training plan next time, a little more experience and more reasonable race-day temps, and what do you think Hayley could run? We hope to find out soon enough.

Hayley Long Sets New 5k PR

After the race Hayley said, “This was the first race in a while that a female elite runner participated, along with another woman that has been running in the 19’s…they pushed me and I got a PR – 20:34 – shock. Getting 3rd overall is the best win with a PR!  19’s seem so possible!”
