Hey Doc,
Kudo's on making it up Haleakala - I walked that back when I was in my forties. No way would I ride a bike ...maybe up, but not down! On the other hand, the views are spectacular!

When you brought up the oversight by most folks studying VO2, I was reminded of something my non scientist, but very mechanically oriented brother told me: "Most people stop when they find a problem, not when they find the problem." I think that fits with your talk. Check out the whole car, then fix the real problems.

I did not know that about Horses. Man, am I glad I always listen until the end of a talk. I bet they are breeding for lung capacity now, but how do you introduce that after two centuries of selective breeding for muscle mass and huge hearts?

Great talk. Smiles, Kevin
