    How Can I Get From Fairfax To DC Today? I need to go to the National Museum of the American Indian today for a school project, but it seems all the roads are closed due to the marine corps marathon.
    Is there any way I can get there today?
    Thanks

    Training Injuries??? Hello everyone.

    I have an interest in joining the USMC in 2-3 years, after I finish college.
    My only question is: How easily do marines break from training such as too much running, working out, etc?

    I have a great desire to serve, but I do tend to “break”. Maybe I am over training, but I think it’s also my personality to train hard. I’ve been wondering this for a long time, and any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

      I played H.S. football and due to me being pretty thin but having good speed and liking to hit I had a lot of skeletal muscular injuries…when I got to boot camp (back in ’75 which I’m sure was a hell of a lot more brutal physical than it is today) I held up good until late in phase 3 when we were doing some pretty brutally long force marches…I got a real really severe stress fracture in my right shin and just kept my mouth shut until it hurt so much I just couldn’t force march or run anymore…the DI took one look at my leg and sent me to the hospital where they put me on light duty (also known as sick lame and lazy)…luckily for me it was only 2 weeks before graduation so I guess I just slid by on not being dropped and sent to the the rehab platoon so I got to graduate on time. I held up okay in AIT (now called SOI) and never had any other problems…though when I had been in for about 3 years I tried to train to run in the Marine Corps marathon (I was maxing the Marine PFT at that time, so 3, 4 or even up to 7 mile runs were not an issue at all), which requires lots of mileage I got some shin pain again that caused me to cut back on the running so I wasn’t able to train for 26 miles.

    Best First-time Marathon?!? I am looking into running my first marathon early next year (2014) but I don’t know which one would be best for a marathon rookie. I don’t want anything super difficult. I’m looking for a relatively flat course that has good fans and a decent amount of runners. I ran the Houston half marathon last year and loved it, but I want to change it up this time! Unfortunately, I’m a little late on my training so I can’t shoot for any of the big marathons in October/November. Any suggestions?

    • Curator says:

      Just a few you might consider. The Walt Disney World Marathon is in January. It is a flat course that takes you through Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and through Cinderella’s Castle, exiting into mass of spectators. Then there is the Rock n Roll Marathon in Phoenix, Arizona, also in January. And if you can wait to October, 2014, my favorite is the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C. which takes you by most of the monuments and museums as well as the Captitol, White House and Mall. You would have to get your entry as early as possible after this years marathon because they reach the maximum field very quick.

      You can go to Runners World or Active.Com for more info.

      Get you a flak jacket, a helmet, a rubber riflle, and a ALICE pack stuffed with about a hundred twenty five pounds of weight in it, and start running with all that gear on you, preferably wearing cadillac boots (go fast sneakers will be fine to break you in, but the boots will be imperative). Take it slow at first, work your distance up, find hilly terrain in you area, and run up and down for a couple of hours with the gear on. Intermittently stop while running, do many eight count body builders (while still wearing your gear), continue running, repeat. Low crawling or high crawling a hundred meters here and there won’t hurt either. Work yourself up to marathon length. You wanna be a recon bubba, you are gonna have to also learn to swim laps with all that gear on you also. Endurance and cardiovascular are the key. If you are not involuntary puking after a PT session, you are not putting out enough. After doing this for a year, boot camp will be a breeze for you, aswell as the recon indoc. Doing all the basic Marine Corps exercises will help, but getting ready for humping will make everything so much easier. Also, screaming to the top of you lungs while doing what I mentioned, will help psych you out (yell out KILL, over and over), making everything just a little more bearable. If you can get your hands on Marine Corps prac (SMEAC, BAMCIS, ten general orders, all that good jive, they will be burned in to your brain housing group, and will be with you for the rest of your time on Gods’ blue rock), learn it and recite it out loud instead of screaming the whole way through the self induced forced march.
