I saw that a few weeks ago; it looks like those little cookies with the Hershey kiss in the middle.

Shit I love those. We make them every Christmas.

Watched a bunch of David Belle videos and one of a 45 year old traceur. Got some inspiration that I really  needed. :)

Haha. Missed the humbling sense of failure which only means you need to train harder?

I was able to do a wallclimb today that I was never able to do before.
Then some lady came over and told me that was impressive.
It made me happy :)

well... ok.. parkour for me is something that is a true love and passion of mine. when I'm doing it nothing else matters and it clears my mind and for me its the first thing in a long time that i truly love.  i decided a few weeks ago to give it a shot again but i was going to take it slow and work on my fundamentals, which i have been a lot. idk for some reason i just got this urge to throw a wall flip since id been practicing my flips n stuff in the gymnastics gym the sunday before on mats with spotters... ehhh shit happens..

I'd say the handspring vault was a win  :)  it shows that you have the skill to "fail" a vault by rolling out of it which has saved my ass and I'm sure has saved yours more than once  :D

and I can't even handspring vault  :-\  I always bail out of mine and i've only done a sloppy one once.....

I say bikes are handicaps to traceurs everywhere  :-Sarcasm

I learned how to make rope :D And then I used that rope to make a bracelet for my girlfriend  :-*
I will give it to her tommorow!
The bracelet I mean...  ;)

I wasn't planning on rolling out of it either. It was my left foot that I sprained. If you look closly you can see what happend. I've done the vault plenty of times and haven't failed but this time I was wearing regular shoes instead of my usual vibrams.

The forum looks basicly the same just some different colors. I will explore it more when I get home later.

I played capture the flag in the woods. We had just had a waterballoon fight beforehand. My shirt was really heavy, so I took it off. I continued to search for the enemy's flag.  Crawling through the roughest patches of brush to stay out of sight. Someone saw me and I took off running. I manage to lose them through the brush and head back towards the enemy's base. I manage to make my way around to the other side of it, close to where the flag is supposedly hidden. At this point im on the edge of a riverbank and I don't want to get wet anymore. So I'm maneuvering my way around branches, brush, ect. My legs start itching. Shit. Poison Ivy. There's a spot where the water levels lower and I go down there and rub mud all over my legs. I can't find their damn flag. So I go up. I'm in the middle of their base, and the rest of my team caught everyone on their team except for like 3 of them. They're the only ones left, so the rest of my team are searching for the flag and one finally spots it. It's above the damn river tied onto a branch. I take off my shoes and call out "I give no f#cks!" grab their flag and continue my way down the river towards our base. Theyre just following me along the riverbank, since im moving slower. I toss it to one of my teammates and they go to run it back to our base, and one of the guys that was left comes back with our flag. I come out covered in scrapes and mud. We lost. But 1. we had a badass game of CTF and 2. I feel like an animal.

I'm still covered in that same mud and and still scratched up. I had an epiphany of sorts today, and I can't explain it, and I have no clue what I'm going to do, but it's going to be AWESOME.

I like the upgrade. Just not the box things instead of stars. But it looks sexy, imo.
