    Realistically, I'd like to get my run under 11:00, of course eventually getting a 18:00 3 mile. My secondary goals are to get the last 5 pullups and 15 situps I need to max those areas.

    I'm not them, but I'm pretty sure they meant 'crazy' as being exceptional, above and beyond the call, worthy of praise etc. And not 'crazy' as being derogatory or offensive.

    Why the hell not? It's a legitimate option that the Marine Corps is giving to poolees to help jumpstart their careers. There's no good reason to not at least give it an honest try.
