30 situps in a minute, 9 minute mile

Most height and weight restrictions have been thrown out at
major police departments, after lawsuits challenging them
on grounds of gender and race. As for strength and stamina,
a recruit in King County need be able to do only

* 30 situps in a minute; and
* run a mile and a half in less than 14 minutes 31 seconds.

“You don’t have to be Superman,” said Sheriff’s Deputy Kurt
Lange, a 14-year veteran of King County, where the vacation
bonus has led deputies to start recruiting on their own,
looking for friends, relatives or just casual acquaintances
who might want to wear a badge.

George W. Bush runs three back to back 6:45 minute miles.
