Shoulda joined the USMC if you really wanted a challenge LOL!!!

Good luck bro, I have experienced a lot of training in my 7 years of service. Its exciting going in, you'll hate your life going through it, then you'll be proud and happy when it is over.

Sounds fun reading about passing out in the water, but I can assure you that the feeling of drowning is the worst thing in the world. Good luck.....

HAHAHA every Marine Ive met have made sure to tell me that. It doesnt help that there are both active and retired marines in the family lol. They tell me I shoulda joined the USMC I tell them if they are down were no one wants to go Ill come get em lol standard light hearted shit talking. Yeah its not the most fun passing out in the water but the one time Ive passed out underwater it wasnt as bad as it sounded. Right before I started going hypoxic was when it sucked worst but as ur brain gets starved of oxygen its actually euphoric and I just kinda slid into a happy sleep. Not good.

Good luck Sean but it doesn't sound like you're going to need it. That's some pretty impressive times you've swam/run. I'm just glad I can still run at all. Being a tank driver doesn't help my fitness levels much! Your courses sound like they all involve an ungodly amount of suck...
