My official finish time was 14:07:01.  I placed 7th on the bike leg and 13th overall in my age bracket.  My daughter-in-law sent me a video clip of my grandson, age 4, who is in LOVE with the Teenage Mutant  Ninja Turtles, chanting GO NANA! GO NANA! GO!  It replayed in my head all day and it just kept me going.
