Thanks guys....

One of the best side effects has been increasing my exercise tolerance. Since 3/15/14, I have walked and mostly jogged over 103 miles!

Ran 4 miles without stopping in the spring:

Brian,
That is fantastic. These things just do not happen without a lot of hard work on your part. (like building an airplane) Keep off the good work.
