    Here are my scores:
    Basketball throw: 69 ft
    shuttle run: 10.3 seconds
    situps: 80
    push ups: 70
    pullups: 18
    mile run: 9:33

    I am a male, weighing 164 pounds.

    I understand my mile time is weak. Should i retake? Thank you

    You're the second or third poster in the last few weeks who has crushed the strength portion and flailed on the run. Should you retake? If you failed I would retake, if you passed there is no need to retake.

    Ah... so your next question. Did you pass or fail? No one knows. The minimums aren't published.

    Good luck. Remember the PRT dictates that you be able to run a 7:20 mile pace for 1.5 miles, so regardless of how you did on the CFA if you plan on attending I'd start running faster. I'm about as narpy as they come and I can still manage to run an 11:30, which is "Good" for my age group.

    Narpy... Thank you for making my night. I got a good chuckle on that one. I plan to utilize this somehow this week.

    I can drive a pretty good mile pace. . . . although I have surprised some folks with my bursts of speed. . . I am a pretty big guy, and when I am not working on my day job, I can be found at various dirt tracks around the country shooting photos. You ought to see how fast I can run when there is an errant race car coming my way. . . adrenalin make for some wonder fuel. . . .
