Pretty much this for me. I realized I like virtually all food so I just eat healthier food that is less calorie-dense.

I want to beat my 10K PR. I think I can get under 46 minutes, I'd love to approach 45 minutes but that's probably too much of a stretch.

I also want to get back to being able to do 20 pull-ups.

I don't see how a dual sink really helps with that, you still have the nasty sink right there for you to see every time you use your sink. Our bathroom has two separate sinks on different walls of...

I would want it in writing mainly in case someone left the company. If your future boss agrees to something but quits before you get it you might be screwed if it isn't in writing.

Nope, I have about 250 miles on my current pair. They are the same model/brand I have been using for years and they normally last 400-500 miles for me. In the past when they are getting worn I just...

I think it depends on what the company means by "target". I have worked where 30% target means 30% every 1 year out of 100 (most years are 10-15%, 25% is a great year). I have also worked where 30%...

Thanks.

I was top 1/3 of people in my old guys age group (twice as many were slower than me as were faster than me). I was happy with that.

I did a small 5K/fun run recently and started much faster than I had planned... but I was able to keep it up so I guess it was a good pace for me after all.

I was once asked for a copy of my most recent performance review for an actuarial job. I agree there is no way for them to confirm it is authentic so people could forge up a great one.
