    Thanks, I will continue to train hard and work in lots of sprinting.

Still just keep on running, since the 1.5 is only the beginning, there's a lot of running ahead of you if you make it that far.
    That's what I've been doing lately. Mixing in max effort 1.5 miles along with longer runs at a more moderate pace. I'm very close to the minimum, and I do expect that adrenaline and running with a big group will get me through, but all these guys talking about such fast times makes me wish I was one of the smaller lighter guys...lol

And if by some grace of god I did, I would get told they'll get back to me later (which doesn't happen). Is this normal? I don't mind it if that's the case, I'm patient, but if I'm the only case then I'm worried.
    I understand how you feel. I was having the hardest time getting through to my investigator. It was coming to the point that I felt like I may have to send a certified letter for proof of contact. I'm talking about numerous phone calls and voicemails week after week with no response. I finally decided to email him and was given an almost immediate response to my questions. So if you haven't tried email, maybe give that a shot.

If that your view about PH don't assume every one in the fh feel the same way.
    A handle full? How much is that? Cool story hanzel.

    So form of lower back exercise 15x weight depends on exercise
    Chin ups 8x
    Shrugs 15x100lbs
    pull ups 7x
    Dual axis row 10x110lbs
    Push ups 25x

    none of this is very difficult on its own for me...But this many compound exercises back to back to back is really hard

    That's great dude! Hopefully they catch all the screen caps of you bragging to people who took the open competitive exam that you'll be "in the academy making full pay while they sit at home!". Not to mention all the posts where you flat out call your future employer racist.

    Wow, whymetoo. Lets not play that game. Even though a poster stated he was going to save a screen shot of something I posted and circulate it around on other message boards and media, I still donít agree with what you plan on doing. Lets not play with people livelihood and especially their personal information. Please do not proceed with what you intend to do. This message board is already being scrutinized by media, wonks, etc.

    I'm amending my request to the rest of the members of the forum. Instead of ignoring this guy, report him. You will see in the lower left hand of the the reply board an exclamation point in a triangle. Every post this guy makes along the lines of threatening people, click it and write what was said.

    Last thing: I have a feeling this guy is a plant looking to get people to say stuff he can twist. Don't respond to him anymore.

    The Yanks aren't that bad, you've simply been spoiled due to years of excellence! The Mets are however, are a truly terrible team and organization. They are the equivalent of an AAA team and with few good prospects in their minor league system, they are a good bet to be terrible for years to come!

    I'm not sure the Yankees minor league system is in that great of shape either, although in their lower level teams, they have several good prospects. But they are the Yanks, they'll manage to get good players from somewhere.

    The AAA system can be deceiving, though. The best minor league ball is probably at the AA level.

    St. Louis is a very classy organization, from top to bottom and I think its the best organization in baseball. Tampa Bay and Texas also have been very well run, top to bottom.

    The Mets are the reason I drink. At least we have Wheeler to look forward to Tuesday, that gives us about 6 Legit big leaguers on the roster. As long as the Wilpons own the team we're screwed.

    No offense to you legit. Yankees fans out here... But all of the "fans" out my way make me hate them.

    You know the fans who don't know anything about Yankee history or the difference between a bunt or RBI but swear they've loved the Yankees forever..or because they win frequently.

    Although the baseball stadium experience is fun though.

    Definitely, with the Wilpons, it's never going to get better. We've got Wheeler up and D'Arnaud coming up, but that sure seems to be about it.

    Any of you watch college baseball or college football? Looking forward to the fall, for that.
