2 Minute Miles and Army Fat Camp


Some real comedy gold here! I can't help but think of John Candy's character in Stripes who, when asked why he joined the Army, responded that a gym membership was too expensive and he wanted to be a lean, mean, fighting machine.
Check out the photo caption; they are hoping to be able to run a 2 minute mile soon. Me Too!

Damn ... BMT has gotten a lot tougher since I was there. Last I checked it was a 12 minute mile and a half. 2 minute miles ... crikey. I might have to re-enlist to get into better running shape!

Darn a 2 minute mile and overweight??? Just might be the calling for Keith G

looks like we've got olympic potential here. Plus they may set a new record by running a WR time carrying assault rifles.

call it the "Full Metal Jacket" record.

The Army already has a place where they send their fat people. It's called the Air Force!
