I chose my own iron and board wihout seeking prior advice/guidance (guesss that rules me out of officer then!). The time it takes me to do the 1.5 mile is very dependant on the number of pubs there on this measured run. The number of push ups I can do is also dependant on the above (standing upright only of course. Just in case you're wondering that's to open the pub door). On the positive side, I pass the fitness test on a daily basis (that is if walking to the car without being out of breath counts as a pass!). I always wear my hair short. Not to conform to Pusser's or anyone else's regs but cos when it gets to a certain length it kinks. I forgot to ask anyone if it was ok to join up merely told everyone important I was going and waited to see if there was anyone left. Despite all of the above if I were young enough do you think they would still let me in?
