Sick Sucks

This is crazy, people. I don't get sick. Well, okay, I do get sick, sometimes. But this has been ridiculous. For the last month, I've been sick 3 of 4 weekends. And we're talking Friday/Saturday sick. It really bites. Hence, over the last month, I've done exactly 1 (one)long run. Arrgh! It's intensely frustrating. My miles are really suffering as a result.

In other news, I'm finding myself being drawn to the fascinating world of multi-sport. Yes, fellow runners, I'm slowly morphing into a budding triathlete. Now, to this point, I am still very much the triathlete caterpillar, just contemplating building the cocoon that will allow me to transform into a multi-sport butterfly. As yet, I have taken my beautiful yellow mountain bike out on one ride in the last several years (which was yesterday). We went a grand total of 6 or 7 miles. It was a total blast, and it confirmed in me the desire to sell it.

Yes, I am offering up the fat tires to the highest bidder (or anyone, for that matter, that will pay me the asking price) so that I may purchase a set of skinny tires with aero bars. Due to my current financial status, these are sadly mutually exclusive. Someday I'll be in a position to have both a set of fat tires and a set (or two) of skinny tires, but right now, I have to pick. And I pick skinny. If someone will take the fat ones off my hands.

So... know anyone that wants to purchase a mountain bike??
