    Whoa! That's most non-triumphant.


    Congrats Jade! At first, my preference was JFK. But now I'm hoping for Dulles or something closer to VA....if I make it all the way of course.

      Thanks Greg, I was hoping for Dulles so bad but I wasn't going to waste this chance for JFK, things change all the time in life and I will always aim to go back to VA along the way. I just need to start my federal career now. I hope to see you there at some point

        • You guys, what do you suggest for good running shoes, I think I am due for new ones today. What's a good and durable brand. The ones I have now are Asics and they last only 5 months before I put a hole in them

            Hey Jade, so how long did they give you until you have to go do your PFT-2?

                  Thank you. Luckily my pft2 will only 2 hours away from my town. I will not have to travel twice across country which I was worried about. I will guess thought that I will be the only person taking pft2 in my state.

                    Oh waoo so many good brands but they are expensive and wont last you much. I suggest saucony on high end and new balance on the low end. I had this conversation days ago with a cousin, he also was using Asics. Also I heard Brooks are really good running shoes. I just bought a Newton for $130. So i guess it depends on what type of shoe you like best.

                    • What kind of Asics were they? I don't spend less than $100 on running shoes. I know a bit about shoes, and no offense who might get angry, but anything less than $100 is garbage.

                      If I had to choose between three Asics shoes, I'd choose Nimbus, Kayanos, and Cumulus. If you don't pronate, stick with the Nimbus.

                        Nice. That's not bad at all. I live in Maine and will probably have to do PFT-2 in Vermont and if/when the call comes I will be going to Texas. So def gonna have a long month when it happens. Just hoping there is plenty of time to get it all done.

                            • I have a question for those who have taken the PFT2 already. I take it on wednesday. when you're doing the 220 yard sprint and the 1.5 mile run, will there be some kind of clock or timer you can see while you're running or can you use your watch/phone while running? because I would love to know how i'm doing on my time especially on the 1.5 mile run.
