Just received my orders for an ADT at Walter Reed and it states to bring my jogging shoes for PT and APFT. I didn't think we needed to do PT at the ADT or worry about the APFT until residency. Anyone know about this?

My orders said the same thing. I leave Sunday. I hope it's not true...

You won't have an APFT until you start intern year (diagnostic in June, real in October and April).
Do you usually do PT at an ADT site? I'm a little deconditioned and want to make sure I'm not lagging behind on the run.

Nope. On ADTs, you belong to no unit, so no company is going to tell you to PT. Just make sure that you are back in shape by the time intern year starts, so you can pass your APFTs, and don't cause any issues for your program (failure may mean you get pulled from further GME).
