At 8:00 this morning it rained…a lot; but that didn’t dampen the spirits of three hundred women outfitted in smart-looking sporting apparel and brightly colored running shoes from participating as Sole Sisters in the Queen of the High Road Half-Marathon. The marathon began at the Wilsonville Memorial Park, wound through town and finished back at the park. An hour after the first flight started, nearly two hundred more ladies embarked on that very admirable goal; to cross the finish line.
With determination and vigor the Sole Sisters encouraged one another along the route and arrived back at the park triumphant and happy with their accomplishment. Proud family members cheered them along the way and presented them with flowers and hugs. For many of these women, it was the first half-marathon they had ever run; for others it was a continuation of a sport they truly enjoy.
Elements Therapeutic Massage of Wilsonville joined in with the community to help provide wonderful healing massages that brought relaxation and relief to the well-deserving runners. Many thanks to Jules, Lisa and Ann, who co-founded The Sole Sisters and worked tirelessly to make this event extraordinary and for the invitation to participate. We look forward to doing it again next year!
