>General Running>The "I should have stayed on the couch" run
I have no doubt that cycling will be in my future...in the next year or so, at least. My legs were made for bikin'. Unfortunately it's a much more $$ sport to break into. And I would miss being able to participate in frequent races the way I can with running.

I meant more as a cross training type of exercise to get the motivation back up, but that works too!
You can find a used bike at a tag sale for $25-$100, and another $30-$100 at your local bike shop will get it fixed up for you. I recommend getting a helmet and sunglasses as well, but those are the biggest expenses to really getting started.

She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.
Heh, a lot of what a bike shop would do to tune a bike for me can be done in my garage by my hubby (did/diddidit). He's a bit of a bike tools whore and does most of the maintenance on his own "baby" Specialized Roubaix Pro ("Ruby"...the other woman). Already have the helmet, clipless pedals, shoes... Unfortunately my bike is a clunky old mountain bike and I don't care for trail riding at all. Someday a real road bike would be nice, especially once our son (6.5) is old enough for his own road bike and we can go out as a family. I'd need a new saddle, too. The one I have almost instantly makes areas that I'd rather not have numb go completely so. Ouchie.
