Hello all,


 


I am a former LEO from a very large city in southern California. I left after 11 years to pursue my dream of aviation. Worked as a pilot, thru many layoffs, company closures and countless other challenges to find myself layed off from an airline again in 2008., I opened a security and investigation business and made my living off that for a few years until some business partnership politics forced it closed. Today im driving a truck ti get by. i want to rerurn to LE and am willing to relocate.,My wife also welcomes any necessary move.  


 


I became Ca POST re-qualifed last march and considering getting certification in Texas and others if shown likely to help me get a job.  Im 47, in decent shape but still wo rkinf on my running speed again. Ive been jogging faithfully 3 times a week, for about 6 weeks, but am still a few minutes short on the 1 1/2 mile run in 14. still about 17,lol. i will get it back, just takes longer on this side of the hill. 


Anyone with any inputs, thoughts or suggestions?  I welcome your replies.

Welcome... Hope you enjoy your stay!  My only suggestion to cut your time down a little faster that I have always found to work well for me.  Change up your routine with your runs... I found that if I spent one day every so often running for 60 min. then another just working on the mile and half, then to wind sprints to help with your speed and endurance...


Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today’s world do not have.
