making weight

I've had an arbitrary goal for body composition going into my race season this year. I'm almost there but I've got 3% more body fat to lose in the next three weeks. I'm no longer lifting weights so instead of putting muscle on I'll have to settle for just maintaining my muscle mass and dropping a bit of fat. I guess the hardest part of this will be limiting myself to only one drink a day...especially with the abundance of beer Eddie's got laying around the house. That, and I'm not a big fruit and vegetable person. Luckily, with the Optimus Ti, my race bike will be dropping a few pounds, as well!

Don't you sometimes wonder how you can expend so much energy and the weight just sits there??? Though, just from the pics, it doesn't look like you have anything to lose at all! I'm hoping that new bike helps me out a little also.

To answer your question from the previous post, I'm a converted runner and adventure racing junkie... It's so much easier when you only have to deal with the bike and not all the other gear. I still love adventure racing, but c'mon $5,000+ entry fees! Isn't that a little crazy?
