New Wannabe Freerunner in Cheyenne.
« on: June 17, 2008, 03:25:42 PM »
Greetings, I have begun to take up to the idea of learning how to Freerun. My web name is Myst and have started to condition myself to hopefully begin a true hobby freerunning very soon. I am from Cheyenne and most commonly known for being one of the top expert players of the In The Groove 2 dance game in the Frontier Mall's Time Out Arcade. I am not in the best shape for the task yet, but I have dropped 20 pounds from vigorous exercise within the last month or so in a effort to start training. Though I have started to practice my rolls and landings now. Be fun to talk so post back.

Hey, I live in Cheyenne and have been doing parkour for about 2 years. I have several friends that practice with me, but we all focus a lot more on parkour than freerunning. However, if you'd like someone to practice with, I'd love to meet up with you.

That's actually a pretty good way of describing it.

I don't know if "elegant" is quite the word I'd use...  I think "flashy" is closer to the truth.  The analogy is very sound though; parkour more purely serves a specific utility whereas free running usually contains unnecessary acrobatic moves such as flips that are meant purely for show.
