You should do marketing for Red Bull.

Yup, this is how I read it.

I don't see a need to reduce unless there's a specific reason to (anxiety increases...etc.).

Those are VERY old New Balance Minimus's (minimalist cross trainers, a little bit of cushioning on them, but not much), maybe 8 years old? I might just bite the bullet and buy some Olympic shoes. ...
