Sole Sisters was birthed in 2008 when three friends, Jules Moody, Lisa Sequeira and Ann Christler began meeting together to train for their first half marathon. Journeying together with the support and encouragement that a sisterhood provides, they bonded as they achieved the goal they set out to complete
What started small has grown into a tribe of over 1,000 women in multiple different locations. This has been accomplished through the leadership provided by volunteer coaches who set the pace to reach one common goal. Sole Sisters is a movement of women who gather to build strong bodies and even stronger friendships.
Through the catalytic energy and camaraderie of training together for that first race in 2008, the vision for the Queen of the High Road (QHR) race was born. Why not put on our own event on the very roads where we train?
QHR half marathon and 10K women’s race was held annually in Wilsonville from 2008-2017. This race was low cost, full of fun, and provided a personalized race experience for each participant.
In 2020, Jessy Lee joined forces with founder Jules Moody to organize the Sole Sisters Half Marathon, 10k, and 5k in Wilsonville.
As a mom of three, Jessy understands how difficult it can be for women to make time for themselves. She is passionate about creating a way for women to not only do something good for their bodies, but also to make friends along the way.
