I went to the doctor in March when it became clear that I had more than just a strain and he shot my shoulder with cortisone. It...

Wow! Thanks for all the replies! I didn't know there were other vaulters like me in NoVa. I will most certainly be PMing those who requested it. That meet on December 16 sounds cool. I'd love to get more details on that. My wife sometimes tells me I'm crazy for thinking I can still do what I did as ...
