Little disappointed that I didn't get in under under 2 hours given how close I got, but not too shabby for a short, fat tanker whose motto before joining the 3d Infantry was "Death before dismount." The looks on the faces of some of the infantrymen that I beat was priceless...they couldn't believe it when I blew by them and then continued my pace all the way to the end.

These guys have me in the best shape of my life. The best mechanized unit I have ever been in...bar none.
Goalies are always the best conditioned players on the team......
