I haven't written in quite some time. And, with injuries occasionally slowing me down, wasn't sure I would get to this point. Today I achieved 1st Dan. I have written in support of others over the past few years and have allways appreciated the comments of others on this site. I have repeatedly been supported by positive comments from many of you, and would like to thank you again. I feel that I am at a transition point were the real learning begins, and am looking fwd to that. At 51 I am running circles around others at work. I've lost 30lbs and attribute my gains to the excellent daily TKD excercises. Good luck to all who have supported me.
