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.
- Always use buttermilk.
- If it tastes good to you, eat it.
- If you’re running less than 5 miles, run them alone.
- If you don’t like your job, find a way to make it better.
- If you can’t make it better, find a new one.
- When in doubt, add chocolate chips.
- Find a running community.
- Everybody is underpaid when their work environment stinks.
- Don’t be blindly loyal to a shoe brand. If it doesn’t feel right, try another brand.
- Sugar tastes really good. Especially in gummy bears.
- Happiness is different for everyone.
- Everybody thinks they know what you are thinking.
- Sometimes good is good enough.
- Everyone has their own source of inspiration. Find it wherever you can. Do what works for you.
- Shoes. You get what you pay for.
- Nothing brings people together or sparks great conversation like a stack of pancakes.
- 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.
- Never pay full price for any running gear.
- Feedback really sucks and it hurts. But you can eventually learn from it if you choose to.
- Readers (eyeglasses) are cool. Some see it as a sign of getting old, I see it as a gift of better sight!
- There are everyday aches and pains and there are injuries. Learn to know the difference.
- If it really hurts, don’t run.
- Mix it up and make a glaze.
- Everybody hates HR. Yeah, yeah, find a new headline. I love you all, anyway.
See you next year!
