I want to thank everyone at Parkour Horizons for holding such a massively awesome event, having it run smoothly and efficiently, and especially Brian for letting me crash at his place. It was an amazing experience to be around so many passionate traceurs from around the country, I am sure that the skill level of everyone involved went up a notch just from the collective energy. I know mine did, going from almost complete n00b, up to not so complete n00b. Maybe I will stop lurking here now?

My abs are sore.

From all the Guys in Texas Parkour, the 20 hour drive to get there and the 25 hour drive for me to get back was worth it.  If it had been a 30 hour drive it still had been worth it.  Thank you for the great hospitality JO, and thank you Muhammad for all the info.  Thank you all Ohio guys for just being great and have a strong community.  Much props.

I wanted to say something about how amazing it was, or how organized all of you parkour horizons guys where, or how awsome it was to meet and train with everyone but i think it might have already been said so....

Simply, thank you everyone.

Just a reminder to everyone:

If you have video/pictures posted online that you want to share with the parkour community, email us at contact@parkourhorizons.com and we will probably put it up on the Media part of our website.

I would just like to thank everyone for coming.  Hosting this event was a true joy.  I loved meeting all of you and having the opportunity to train with you all.  If ever any of you are traveling through the Midwest just remember there is always an open door.  I look forward to seeing you all again!  Maybe next year.  ;-)

Thanks for posting that, good read.

We're working on a write-up of our own. It should be finished within the next week.

Po-yee Pang has uploaded around 550 high resolution photographs from the event which can be viewed at various sizes or as a slide show. I think that is only half of what she has, but it is enough to keep you busy for a while anyway. Some great shots in there. Check it out:
