          Go to Runner's Den on 16th Street between Bethany Home Road and Glendale, by the DQ. Tell them you are going to ALEA, they know what it is and need shoes. They will find some and then have you run in them to make sure...dont get skimpy with cost....this is the place to slurge and get some really good running shoes.
          Well first, life dealt you a bad hand, then you decided to double down.

            The academy regulations allow you to take camelbacks, but it's also up to your class sergeant. Our class sergeant said no to camelbacks. Honestly you're not going to need it. I haven't taken water for any of our runs. The big thing is to make sure that you hydrate the night before.

              up to the sergeant..mine said no water..class ahead of me took enough water for a 5day hike..you will find out that first glorious day of your trail run what you can and can not have..as far as the shoes..go with a trail shoe, but again it depends on the sergeant as to where you wil be running..

                  The thing is, you won't know if you're going to be running on the streets or the trails. That decision is made by your SGT. at a moments notice. Like the other poster said, go to Runner's Den, that is your best bet, I've even heard class SGT's and RTO's recommend it.

                        Get a sneaker that is a combination of both ... I think I had just a regular old running shoe when I went through and it was fine.

                          Mizuno makes a great running shoe, also brooks. You should really make a trip to a store that specializes in running. I went to one when I was in the academy here in Illinois. The took video of my walking/running on a treadmill. They concluded I had over pronation, and picked out shoes to correct it.
                          I tell you what it helps. I increased my running by at least 1 1/2 miles, now up to 6 miles 4 days a week. No pain in the anles, knees or back.
