I'm new to all this
« on: February 07, 2008, 07:28:24 AM »
Could someone tell me how I should go about practicing and how to get this WOD everyone keeps talking about. Another thing, I'm 14 and have always been interested in free running.

Welcome!

A lot of the answers you seek can be found in this thread, just a few above yours:  http://www.americanparkour.com/smf/index.php?topic=7100.0

Here is a great article on how to get started: http://www.americanparkour.com/content/view/887/270/

The WOD can be found on the main page, on the right-hand column, above the quote of the week: http://www.americanparkour.com/content/view/1849/1/
The APK Warmup is always linked from the top of the WOD, as that is the starting point for every WOD:

Good luck!

as though there were some obstacle in the way;

she would be beyond all walking, and would fly.
