    I'm right there with you with the running. I'm hoping the adrenaline rush during the PT test gets me through it. My new apartment complex has a pretty nice gym so I've been trying to utilize it as much as possible. I know we'll all be fine. Verbal coaching is permitted.

    You found an apartment already?! I'm STILL looking for a place to live, so I'm jealous, ha! I'm looking for houses though & have a pet, so different parameters I guess. I wasn't told before I came that I would be looking for a place to live BEFORE BOLC, so I was a little screwed to begin with. I'm just blessed I have family & friends here already in case of housing crisis, lol.

    I start fizzling out with "jogging/running" at 0.5 miles...& then complete the rest with fast walking & trotting....so, yeah, that's bad, ha.

    You guys have to find your own apartment for BOLC? I would have thought the army housed you on base?

    No you're right. They do provde housing unless you're PCS'ing to Fort Sam after BOLC. Meaning we have to drive in everyday of training. Fun fun fun.

    If your permanent command station is not Fort Sam Houston, you will be housed by the Army for BOLC, so no worries!!! It's for those who have been assigned here for our first station in addition to BOLC that have to find housing because we will be here 2-3 years.

    Gotcha! thanks for clearing that up! do they offer housing on base for officers after you finish your training? or are you required to get an apartment off base?
