Great news Neoman, sounds like things are working very well. Running two miles must be a good feeling even if your wife beats you....LOL.
My AUS also continues to perform well. I still wear a light womens pad just to catch residual drops that seem to be there since I don't have the patience to wait a couple of minutes after peeing. Also, I will occasionaly get a little leakage if I strain a lot, like swinging a golf club. I can make it a full 18 holes without changing pads, just peeing at the turn.
Another thing that I find helpful is that I wear Jockey pouch boxer briefs with a flap that is horizonal at the top. I find this a lot easier to get Willie out. Then, I can easy hold him in one hand while the other hand activates the pump by running it down the outside of the briefs. Acaully I find it more comfortable to activate with the cloth material between the scrotum and my fingers that when I am holding the bare skin.
Ron, good luck with yours as well....your life is about to get a whole lot better.
