I entered the academy in the first week of November, 1979. No sooner was I there when physical training or PT training started. One of the first runs was up a parking lot hill. The Academy staffer leading the run told everyone to roll our feet when running uphill. He mentioned, “We might be a little sore the next day.” On November 13, 1979 while running the 440-yard dash in PT class, I felt a sharp pain in both legs. As I was finishing the race, I was unable to stand firmly. I was sent to a city doctor who diagnosed me with having ” shin splints” I was old to suspend any running for two weeks. I returned to full duty on December 22 and was able to pass all physical testing with flying colors. #Recovery
