Thanks, I am getting more in the habit of that 5:30 alarm to get my butt out of bed and to the gym. I am amazed how much progress I see from week to week. I am becoming more optimistic about my long term results . However my long time riding buddy who has had three back surgerys tells me not to get ahead of myself, so I am paying attention. I still have some hope for Silverton Co in August! Thanks again to everyone and for those still in pain, hang in there I send you good thoughts!
