Wants Vs. Needs ~ a Question

I don't know about you, but my list of wants is a mile long. Unfortunately the list of needs is far longer. :(

My question for you today is this: My dear daughter has "assumed possession" of my bike. I no longer have a bike to ride other than an old one of Mike's. I am 5'2.5" and he is 5'10". Does not quite work... So, on to the question...

~ If you were "bikeless" would you consider that a WANT or a NEED?

Basically, I'm looking for data to back up my thought that it is a neeeed:) heh heh! Peace. Trish

Feeling Reflective...

I've been doing a lot of soul searching lately. Trying to decide why I'm lifting weights and running and why I secretly want to do a triathlon... The challenge? ~ love me a good challenge. Weight loss? ~ duh! Fitness? ~ yep that too! Unfortunately, I know myself well enough to know none of these reasons are enough. Why do I want this soooo badly? I can't put my finger on it, but I do know that I want it and I've decided that for now, that is enough!
Why do you do what you do?
Yet another beautiful Wisconsin evening!



Ta Da!

So, what did ya all think of my disappearing act?? :) Sorry I've been MIA. Life has been insanely busy. I've been up and down and everywhere in between over the last few weeks. The good news is I've still been working out. Not running as much, cause I'm continuing to have problems with my foot as well as my hip, but lifting and some cardio. However, barring any bad news from my doc tomorrow, I should be back to my normal routine Saturday! Woot Woot!!
I continue to be inspired by all of you as well as a little closer to home. Last weekend, I had the honor of watching a couple of my friends do this:
