Getting Into Shape for 2008!

Found this pic form 4 years and 20/25 lbs ago! Was my best year on the bike and man did I feel good! I'm making a promise to myself to get back into shape for 2008. Gonna do the KOM,The Triple Crown, and kick some azz! I'm tired of being fat. I'm getting into shape starting now DAMMIT!

Who is with me?

Who cares that I'm a bit older, I can do it!

It's too early to give up on 2007. One year at a time, dude!

I'll join ya, Beanz! I gotta get back into race shape and drop a few percentage points. I think with the shorter days I'll be incorporating more running days into my week, so hopefully I can trim the excess fat off. Every year, it gets a little harder and harder...

Hey Beanz? Does this mean you're going to plan/organize some "get your ass in shape NOW!" rides?

NO. Nor did I say "prostitution" - which is what I'd have to resort to in order to afford one.

I'm not derailing anything, Happylongtime! I'm merely pointing out that I have to either lose weight or sell sexual services to men on the street to make my goal of lightening my bike for both the Solvang Double and 2008. I can't think of anything more aligned to this topic.

Hehehe! Luwin, back before I discovered cycling I used to seriously pump iron. Some of teh kids' friends used to ask me if I were one of the Gladiators. That's when the showwas on. Long ago in a far away world...
