Why don't you just throw a small swim in there, and do a tri?
Needs more cowbell!

Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson
See now running is MY zen thing! Damn who knows what would happen if you got me on a bike (and to think I live like 5 miles from the PA Veledrome). I have to say though that when my youngest children are old enough to bike with me I'll definetly start biking! Oh and I've seen zoomers neked too j/k

Man, I just looked at your profile, and you are one funny lookin' woman. Must be, like, east german or somethin' to have a goatee like that. Clearly your avatar is false advertisin'.
Biking, I can go somewhere. There's a place with killer cinnamon rolls, but it's a minimum of a 52 mile round trip to get one. I can wander back roads for hours on end in a reverie that'll only be interrupted by some jackadze passing me too close (Michigan law's pretty cool with bikes - we're treated as cars for the most part). Running, that only happened when I was peaked out, fitness-wise (back in the day when I could go out and run 8 miles in 55 minutes and come home feeling pretty decent). That's many years and many more pounds ago.
We've got a trail-a-bike for the didlet, so he can learn traffic etiquette and all that. He's got all the duds, too, except he's so skinny his spandex hangs off him like loose skin.
I've got a fever...
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
Thanks for joining Mr. Zoom!
Got a bike question for you -- can you recommend a good saddle from a standpoint of comfort? I have a Specialized Rockhopper mtn bike, but most of my riding on it will actually be stationary training (as a non-running day cross-training activity).
