It's 1.5 miles. Still sad. That's an 8/min mile pace.

We need to find a good shot of her to determine if she's bangable.

Initially I thought the 1.5 miles in 12 mins was with equipment.

Without? That is slower than most of the fatties I see running around my local park.

No way. I ran 2 miles in 12 minutes in track in HS.

At this point, even if she passes the test, it means there's about a 1 in 6 chance that she could pass it on any given day. She's not fit for duty.

I don't know many people who can run a sub 5 minute mile. I couldn't even at my peak. I'd believe you said I know instead of "I think".

Anyways, I get what your saying.

These women believe they have the right to be something but they forget if they don't have the qualifications then they can't.

It's extremely important for there to be more women and minority fire fighters in the US.

If you disagree it's only because you're a racist and misogynist.

If you disagree publicly we will flood your boss with emails and phone calls about your behavior and have you fired.

We will also harass your wife at work in the hopes of getting her fired as well, because she deserves it for being married to a woman hating racist.

I know plenty. Although I did senior club athletics for about 10 years so makes sense.

Just to be clear, the firefighter test requires an 8 minute mile pace for 1.5 miles, for a total of 12 minutes.

Very doable.

Fire departments have a long history of requiring the passing of fitness test to become a fireman. My brother is a fire chief and he showed me his department's fitness test. It's a timed obstacle course that requires you carry a 175 lbs dummy up stairs and so on. Much harder than running 1.5 miles in 12 minutes.

The test is not for giggles. It's important for firemen to be fit because they have to run up stairs and all kinds of other vigorous stuff to save lives. Firemen retire at a young age because they need fit and spry people.

Lowering the standards to get the diversity number is an example of our society's pathology.

Take care of those titties for me.
