We did it!!!!!

Well, we did it! Ginny, Jackie and I finished the half marathon and I couldn't more proud of us. Here is my official time from the Rock N Roll Half Marathon Virginia Beach Half Marathon:

Lee Anne Stone
Oklahoma City, OK
Age: 30 | Gender: F
Overall: 10822 out of 14767 · Division: 1026 out of 1451 · Gender: 5462 out of 8380
Here are my thoughts from the race: I ran the entire way. I did not walk once! Mile 9 was the hardest. I was really proud of my cardio training because I didn't get out of breath at all during the race, but about Mile 9 my body started to get tight and my legs started to burn. Mile 11 I got a burst of energy and ran faster and actually recorded my fastest mile...10 minutes. The last mile seemed like it took forever and the last .1 was seriously brutal. All in all, it was a fabulously wonderful experience and I am soo glad we did. Go TEAM ISAIAH!

The coolest part of the race was this....As I rounded out of Camp Pendleton at mile 6, my IPOD died. I am a genius and did not charge it the night before. I was thinking to myself, "How in the world am I going to do this without music???" All of a sudden, a woman shouts out, "Team Isaiah! Lee Anne Stone!" I look over and she and three of her girlfriends all shouted out, "We LOVE your blog! Go Team Isaiah!" Talk about a grace moment!!! That fueled me through the rest of the race and I just reflected on my precious baby and our time together on this Earth. you Virginia Beach ladies who cheered me on...THANK YOU. I needed you all at that very moment and am so humbled that you take the time to read my blog. What blessings you were!!!!

There are a lot of pictures from the race but this one is my favorite! My loves cheering me on at Mile 11. Love you both Renzi and Jackson for supporting me before, during and after the race. You all keep me going!

Much love!
Lee Anne
