Hi there all. First a little bit of background. I will soon be 30 years old and have had my sights set on joining the army for a while now. I considered joining as a ODP but it would appear that I am too old. Fair one! I have therefore decided to switch my application to CMT. I have managed to get my mile and half time down to a respectable (I think) time of 9:39 and have managed to complete a 10K run in 49 mins. I am presently working on getting my BMI within the NHS stated 'normal range' and may well get there some day! (Hopefully!) I terms of service knowledge I have a great deal of family in the army (my inspiration in the first place, so blame them) and have been researching the hell out of the RAMC. I know that I am letting myself in for a lot of long days of work setting up and striking down tents! I also aim to gain the required phys scores for my branch at the young bucks age group! My main question would be, given my age, am I nuts for trying this? Is 30 truly over the hill? Anyone out there know of any "less than spring chickens" who joined up? Thanks all and please, lots of banter and piss taking. I have to get used to it!
