Trained at a park I hadn't been to in a year and nailed a bunch of stuff I couldn't then. Seeing my progress felt awesome.
I also did it in the rain.
Rain training, ftw.

If that's what you are into, how do your parents not no already? Seems like they would have got that vibe early on.

Yeah, normally it's not a huge surprise when someone comes out. Especially if you're really close to them, like a parent.

Over on the awesome side of things, I went to my first parkour class (first time I've trained since I hurt my knee about a year agi), learned to roll better, and I'm sufficiently worn out that I don't think I'll be able to move tomorrow. Feels goooooooooood. ;D

Today I was running down a river running from rock too rock and almost steped on a rattle snake! At the last second I jumped over it. It was rattling so load. I didn't know it sounded like a hiss mut me and my friend proceeded to throw rocks at it. I got video of half of it because the first thing I thought about was that I wished I was recording. Then about 3 hours later as it was getting dark we saw a black bear less than 200 feet away.

Oh and I got to watch the movie kung fu hustle

Today some friends and I were practicing vaults outside my school after classes and a teacher leaving the building going home asks us what we were doing, but in a curious sort of way not an angry way. He was pretty cool. It went something like this:

"Hey what is it that you're doing? What's it called?" I'm assuming he'd heard of parkour somewhere before....
"It's called parkour, sir."
"Oh yeah it's that thing where people jump around stuff. Over stuff. On top of buildings right?"
"Well.....not really on top of building that's the more extreme side of it. What you gotta do is practice the basics. Like running, jumping, vaulting over things. Precision jumps are good too. They're when you jump from one place to another and land in a precise spot without falling or losing your spot. It's really fun actually. :) "
"Oh that's cool. Just be careful not to hurt yourself or anything ya know. And watch out there are a couple of people here that might tell ya to stop."
"Okay sir. Bye!"

Well he was just about getting to the parking lot so I couldn't get into a more detailed explaination.....

But I feel like this was a win for parkour in Eagle Pass (small town in south western Texas where my friends and I practice parkour) because:

1. He was cool with it. Which surprized me because he seemed like the type of teacher that would be real strict. He actually saw us yesterday too xD
2. He didn't entirely think that parkour was people on buildings xD
3. I got that cleared up with him.
4. He looked pretty old. Which is a good thing because I'm guessing the older you are as a teacher in a school, the longer you've been there, the more the administrators and colleages trust your judgement. Which means that maaaaybe; by some sort of miracle, he'll spread the word somehow. And hopefully that won't turn into "oh mr. so and so told me about this thing called parkour and how some kids were doing it here at school. So I looked it up online and found all this crazy shit!  [WTF]  We can't let em do that!"

Eh at least we got the support of one teacher xD

A couple of other things that made my day awesome is that I found a page on "bend your knees when you land" in my physics book which was explaining something about impulse (change in momentum over time I think) and how when you bend your knees you have more distance to slow down and thus lose momentum or something. I don't know I didn't really get toooo into it but my friend and I made a joke about how we don't only "KNOW this stuff. We can DO it!" xD

And I saw this one teacher who had grown his hair and looked like Michio Kaku! xD For those of ya that don't know he's a theorectical physicist and he's pretty famous I believe.

Showed some kid up who has been talking down to me and pissing me off for ages. Actually it made my year.

I overslept for my first jam in a long time.  Then found out I had some how deleted all of the numbers of the attendees, had to run around the area trying to find them.  Long story short I ran around CSU Chico's campus for 1 hr and 28 min and still did not meet any of them.

Then I had to go to work.  Yeah it sucked.
