    How do you think I'm feeling now at 6'1"? Hah.

    Random question, have you been to the CO state fair over in Pueblo? A few of us were thinking of driving down there this summer. Think it's worth going to? Of course Dwight Yoakam and Merle Haggard had to play the last couple years but not this year...

    Seems like you are in a nice groove with your training. You've got your TRAC thing going and seem to have a good programming plan in place. Between those two factors and putting on some weight, I'd bet you are going to see some good results in the upcoming months.

    Thanks Walter. I have a pace of progression that without injury, emergency or life change could add 150 to my total in. 12 months.
