Whar are we called?
« on: February 06, 2010, 10:46:53 AM »
I was wondering what you call someone who practices PKFR? Like how a person who races is a racer and one who paints is a painter. 'PKFRer' is kinda odd to say so what should I say I am a 'runner,' 'parkourist'?

Traceur or Freerunner. Pronounce it how you like.

I don't know if you know it, but I will assume that you don't just for the sake of the post. PK is the abbreviation for parkour and FR is the abbreviation for freerunning. They aren't the same thing. Somebody that does parkour is a traceur (like a trace-or) and sombody that does freerunning is a freerunner. You are pretty much one or the other. However, you can be one that does the other occasionally.

Freerunning was initially coined as the English synonym for Parkour.

And while the words have grown to have different connotations, just know that the words technically mean the exact same thing as according to the initial dubber.

... and they mean the same thing to "outsiders." They don't care why you do it, they just think it looks cool. :P
