So I went to Cincinnati this weekend, and as I was comming back, i had a layover in Chicago, only to find out that my second flight was Cancelled! I was SOOOOOOOOO mad at American Airlines, and they were completely worthless in helping me. They made me wait around on standby for 2 flights over about 4 hours, and i just gave up. I went to the counter to collect my free hotel room, they owed me at least that, because they were making me wait for a flight that was in the morning, the next day. BLAAHH.

Either way, i thought, you know, i should give Ando and Frosti a call, they both live in chicago! so i did, and what started out as a terrible day at the airport, ended as an awesome day jamming downtown chicago with two of my awesome teammates! Yes, i was dead tired, but at least i got in a little bit of fun in on such a crappy day! haha

We started inside this awesome indoor parkour heaven building. there was surprisingly a huge amount of stuff to do there. we worked on short runs, but they were all intense and creative. We moved along in that building for a while, then went outside. All you chicago locals should know exactly where we went, haha. i cant really explain it too well, but it was around that sweet campus.

just thought I would share my story with you all! Moral is..............................................................



um.... Do parkour in places.

Sounded like a good day of pk.

Good things happen even when the going gets tough. I want to know more about that building, sounds really cool, is it a secret to you Chicago locals?  ;D
