HAD MY LAST POOLEE PT TODAY
It makes me sad to leave to my Recruiter! And my fellow Poolees.
BUT I AM ALSO SO FREAKING PSYCHED TO GO TO BOOT CAMP IN 1 DAY AND 9 HOURS!
We did an IST today and I wasn’t allowed to partake cause they don’t want me to get hurt. haha So I helped by motivation and got a small run and flex hang in. hehe
I AM GOING TO MISS SSGT JIMMERSON AND SSGT GUITRON! I WAS BLESSED WITH THE 2 BEST RECRUITERS IN THE WHOLE DAMN MARINE CORPS! Poolee Crush :P
I can’t wait to go to Boot Camp though and kill it. I will be the best damn Marine. I am so mentally ready. I am pretty good on the fitness side, but I will only improve while I am there. I will make my Corp Proud. My Dad Proud. My Rs Hillsboro Family Proud. And OF COURSE My Recruiters Ssgt Jimmerson and Ssgt Guirton Proud.
OORAH! DO OR DIE! There is no try! (modified Yoda quote)
(GOOGLE THIS SSGT GUITRON! hehe)
4 MORE DAYS TILL BOOT CAMP AT MCRD PARRIS ISLAND!
That is all.
SQUAD LEADER AND CALLED CADENCE TODAY
PT WAS AWESOME! We started off by getting drilled with questions and if we got a question wrong we did 20 pushups…
Then SSGT Guitron SMOKED us! IT was awesome. We had a lot of guests come today though so on the run back people were falling out left and right.
So we would slow down and wait and people were starting to get tired and unmotivated, waiting for these people so I started Calling Cadence…
EVERYONE immediately perked up! AND SSGT GUITRON (most moto person I know) Looked at me and pulled me out of Formation so I could call Cadence. The look he gave me made me feel so proud of myself… It was one of complete approval and happiness. :D
Then during his moto speech at the end of PT he said he loved us all and that we are family and he is exteremly proud of us and that we got poolees PTing harder than in boot AND Poolees calling Cadence better than most Marines. (aka me.)
WHAT A GRRRRRRRRREAT DAY! Boot Camp in 15 Days.
MCRD PI… I am ready for you.
30 DAYS BEFORE BOOT CAMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh Parris Island… Here I come.
1ST PLACE! OORAH!
The poolee function today was AWESOME! MY TEAM KILLED!
TEAM WATTS #1 We worked as a team and beat everyone. We have to do 150 pull ups and 300 crunches and we were timed. Then we ran spun around and ran back, Did a relay, and low crawled and threw a grenade and ran back. Then we finished with tug-of-war.
We rocked it. We worked as a family and dominated. Pulled a muscle but so worth it! Oorah! Easy day!
I love me some PT!
THE SHIT I DO FOR THE MARINE CORPS
Today I went to work early, only got like 2.5 hours of sleep.
After work Masha, fellow poolee, went to see my Recruiter SSgt Jimmerson and he is lending me his Ruck Sack (pak.. whatever you wanna call it) and I filled it with about 10lbs of stuff… THEN Masha and I ran 3.5 miles with it on around The Nike Campus here in Beaverton, OR.
Then we can back to my house and did:
- · 100 pushups
- · 200 situps
- · 10 minutes flex arm hang
- · 200 steam engines
- · 3 mile run
- · 200 mountain climbers
- · 300 crunches
- · 200 bodyweight squats
And we did it. Masha puked a little and then kept going. I collapsed but got back up and kept going. Now we can barley move and we FUCKING LOVE IT. OORAH BABY! We are becoming Machines. NO IFs, ANDs, OR BUTs!
