@mb176263 Good for you! I'm glad you have found exercise to be of great benefit in your 80s.  I was just thinking about writing up a post about an 81 year old man I know who races recumbent bikes. A few weeks ago he rode up California's Tioga Pass unassisted. The man is quite an inspiration, in part because he decided to keep fit. (He also plays in a band, and volunteers at a genealogy library, and keeps the rest of us in good humor. Smiley Happy)
