thanks for the post. I am so grateful for the motivation. I can't imagine running on concrete!! Both knees are painful at times and I take heart that things can be improved. I think I said in an earlier post, it seems such a long road ahead and joints seem "seized" up that I just thought "things" were past it and probably couldn't be improved. Thank you. L
