First, I wouldn't worry much about getting bulky, especially if you're running a lot. I know there's some physiological explanation to that, I just can't remember it. I do remember though that the more aerobic activity I do, the less likely I'm going to bulk up.
Yes, I'm with you on this one. I'm not trying to bulk up so I try to do low weight, high rep. I recently read in a book that increased muscle volume (bulk) means decreased vascularity and decreased concentration of mitochondria, which leads to decreased muscle endurance.
Thanks for the suggestions. I'll do some more reading on it!
Here is a good article on strengh training from runners world.
