HR, Pancakes, and Running: What I’ve Learned and Observed in 2018

Happy New Year’s Eve. This is my last post of the year and I thought I’d share some advice, some things I’ve learned, and just some random silliness I’ve accumulated from this past year.

  1. Always use buttermilk.
  2. If it tastes good to you, eat it.
  3. If you’re running less than 5 miles, run them alone.
  4. If you don’t like your job, find a way to make it better.
  5. If you can’t make it better, find a new one.
  6. When in doubt, add chocolate chips.
  7. Find a running community.
  8. Everybody is underpaid when their work environment stinks.
  9. Don’t be blindly loyal to a shoe brand. If it doesn’t feel right, try another brand.
  10. Sugar tastes really good. Especially in gummy bears.
  11. Happiness is different for everyone.
  12. Everybody thinks they know what you are thinking.
  13. Sometimes good is good enough.
  14. Everyone has their own source of inspiration. Find it wherever you can. Do what works for you.
  15. Shoes. You get what you pay for.
  16. Nothing brings people together or sparks great conversation like a stack of pancakes.
  17. There’s no right way to do something, but there are 99 wrong ways to do something. Just ask someone. They’ll tell you you’re doing it wrong.
  18. Never pay full price for any running gear.
  19. Feedback really sucks and it hurts. But you can eventually learn from it if you choose to.
  20. Readers (eyeglasses) are cool. Some see it as a sign of getting old, I see it as a gift of better sight!
  21. There are everyday aches and pains and there are injuries. Learn to know the difference.
  22. If it really hurts, don’t run.
  23. Mix it up and make a glaze.
  24. Everybody hates HR. Yeah, yeah, find a new headline. I love you all, anyway.

See you next year!
