    So I finally got my MEPs date and everything squared away, Ive been running and doing my pushups and sit ups and such for a while now, but my run is still slow. Im at bout 12:42 for my 1.5 mile run. I know I have to pass the PT test before they ship you out to basic, but do they administer that PT test at MEPs or the days following MEPs? Or is that test given closer to the date of your ship out date? I know my times are passing times but Id like to give myself more room on the run so I can better that time and be closer to the 11s or even the 10s.

    Your recruiter should be the one to test you. Some recruiters if the area is big enough hold PT meetings. A lot of people make a big deal on the 1.5 mile run. Seriously if you can't make the time then a person needs to rethink why they can't or don't. When I was in the USAF which is known by some to be the Chair Force the only PT we were required to do was the annual 1.5 mile run or a 3 mile walk. Many of us started running maybe two weeks before the test. I even saw NCO's smoking while on the track. You can do the run. I never missed my time.

    Yea, I was reading though past posts on here throughout the night and saw that the tests were administered between the first visit to MEPs and the second visit before you ship out. My times pass (as of now) but I was reading that a lot of guys do worse on their times in front of their recruiters. I guess they get stressed out? Weird to me, but Maybe I'm just overthinking it I guess. Anyways, thanks for the response.

    You are overthinking it. I'm really old and when I would run I had a portable cassette player with running cadences on it. If you can run with the Airborne you can do it.
