I have a cousin who loves camouflage. He'd buy everything if it came in Mossy Oak.

I assume he thinks it is slimming. Personally, I don't see it.

trekkiecougar: cryinoutloud: Mateorocks: The basic training PT test passing thresholds for a 51-year-old woman must be pretty funny.
10 push ups in two minutes?
10 sit ups in two minutes?
2 mile run in under an hour?

I'm probably in better shape than you are, junior. But keep pounding on that keyboard if it makes you feel better.

I second that, cryinoutloud!

I've been seriously running for 4 years now. My average mile time is 11 mins 47 secs (my short runs are 6 - 8 miles and my long runs are 10-14 miles). Most mornings I do 50 sit-ups and 40 pushups (takes about 3 -4 minutes for all).

To be fair, a cougar that gets out of shape will starve to death if it can't run down its prey.

She had to apply three times and she had to put up with a ton of shiat, but when she threatened to resign, they gave it to her. The next youngest girl in her class was half her age. They must have thought she was some far-out old woman humping it over that course. I did it when I was 19 and it damn near wasted me. A tough motherfarker. She finished. She could have gone for Admiral, but she went for herself instead.

Crap, too slow. Sorry, Tom. I think it's great that she's signing up again. I wonder why the huge gap though from her Navy service until her Army service?

I was thirty one when I went through boot camp, and I was older than all of the drill sargeants. When I was being picked up from boot camp, during the Christmas break..called the Exodus, my now ex-wife who was 10 years older than me came to Fort Jackson to pick me up. Some young sargeant gets who she's looking for, and yells out in a crowded room, W*** (my last name), YOUR MOTHER'S HERE! To tell, it wasn't a good ride back down to Flawiduh.
