    Hey everybody, I've been reading this forum for a while now, figured it was about time to actually create an account. I leave for basic on October 17th, and can't wait to be a part of the coast guard. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Boot camp can be way less stressful when you realize it's all staged, the stress they put on you is all artificial. I figured that out the moment they stepped on the bus and said the exact same line as the YouTube video, "You have 10 seconds to get off this bus and you just wasted 5". When you realize it's all fake the yelling won't bother you as much, just do what your told and the CC's will focus on the people who really need it instead of you. The 8 weeks seems to last forever while you are there but it's not very long at all. Don't quit, 8 weeks is so short. I graduated May and time has flown by since then. So don't quit over 8 weeks of boot camp. Also know your required knowledge before you get there! It's all basic info and not hard to learn before you go.

    I just swore in august 3rd, so I've been studying my helmsman more and more. And I've been going to the gym quite often, working on my run. That and the push-ups are the only thing I'm concerned with. During and right after high school I could've done all of this easily, but it's been a few years and I let myself slip a little bit 😂. Any advice on the running?

    running is a repetition sport... the more you run the faster you will go. I would suggest running a set distance that can be timed and do that once a week (depending on when you ship). the other days run run run and don't time. you should see your times improve. also remember when you are at boot camp there will be a lot of stress not like running at home so take that into account... good luck and thank you for your service.
