2014 Sole Sisters Charity Run & Walk for Cancer Research
After the stellar inaugural Sole Sisters Run/Walk in 2013, the full Bird family headed back to participate in the 2014 edition. Routes had been updated, with a start from Lower Reach Park in Smiths Falls. The courses also increased to include a 2K, 5K and 10K!
Race day was a reminder winter is on the way. The waterfront setting is beautiful, but the willchill cut through our clothing and the headwind was strong. Pierce was fortunate to have packed his magic mitts, while the rest of us suffered from frozen digits!
Derek and Pierce successfully completed their 2K. Results have Pierce in 24th place, with a time of 18:31. Derek came in at 18:33 for 25th place. This was Pierce’s first time going above a 1K race distance, and while it involved some tears (he was very cold), he was delighted with his shiny, pink medal!

Duncan secured his first 3rd Place Overall with a smokin’ new Personal Best of 24:01 in the 5K. Meanwhile, yours truly wrapped up with a 10th place overall in 30:57. Full results: http://runninggoattiming.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/2014-Sole-Sisters-5K-Results.html
