    ... I'm going to start doing 5k runs every other day or so in the mornings and other days biking and would like to have my camera with me. Anyone know any good bag or something that would keep tight to my body and not bounce around and that isn't big. Just need it big enough for the camera and 2 lenses.

    If it has to be bounce proof, then I can not think anything but a fanny pack style bag exists.

    There are loads of small mountain biking packs with compression straps. Camelbak, deuter, inov8, salomon etc etc.

    Mountainsmith zoom small is my go-to bag for packing light with ep3 and one large or two small lenses, a ultrapod, extra battery and sd card, some business cards, and a filter or two...has a waterproof cover and is 20bux for last years model
    Use this setup everyday for hiking, backpacking as a chest pouch, long trailruns, and very long bikerides, both on and off road.
    I cant say enough good things about it.
    It stays put with the light waistbelt running and cycling, and is just so well thought out.

    Bike messenger bags--Timbuk2 and Crumpler--have both a shoulder strap and cross strap to anchor the bag. I use a small Timbuk2 Classic messenger with XS Snoop photo insert and with both straps engaged it's steady enough for biking, hikes and running like a madman for the train. Not sure about a serious long run as my sprint never lasts more than a few minutes.
