While you consider $2300 high, that's low compared to what I have to pay.

:doublebird: to insurance companies and home owners policies in LA.
It was about hell last year trying to get a policy for my house, between having an older house, a "dangerous" breed dog, and being in LA. It was basically a losing battle.
And frick State Farm. They lost my business when they ...

Every job has stress, no matter how much money you make. It's how you deal with the stress.

I just started with a Master's Swim program this week, so I just follow what the coach says which is mainly focused on my technique and building my endurance. As much as I cycle and run, I didn't think I could get that out of breath swimming.
If you are tired of running, do you mainly just do lon...

Currently swimming with some Water Gear Swedish Pro goggles that are about 11-12 years old. Doesn't look like the design changed any. They work fine in the pool, no leaks, and decently comfortable.

I used to think the same about cycling until I started to do proper cycling workouts. You have to put in more time with a cycling workout than running, but you can get the same results of feeling like you accomplished something when the workout is done.
