Soldiers and PT

I participated in a race this last week on Post, which was about 2.5 miles and had some obstacles, it was called the Adventure Race, not much of an Adventure, but I did get First Place Female.  It’s exciting to win, but on the other hand my competitors were all soldiers, not one other civilian participated, not sure why, but that was disappointing.  It is also sad for me to see how out of shape some of these soldiers are as I was passing them right and left.  I think sometimes when soldiers are “forced” into physical training (PT) every morning; they no long
