Welcome! / Old man in the house

Ok not that old. I'm 29 out of long island, NY and gearing up to get into this amazing discipline. My name is Matt and I haven't been as excited about something as this in a long time. I am currently getting divorced (don't marry young kids!) and this is just what I have been looking for to gain some focus in my life, as well as keep in shape. Quick bio, I was fairly overweight in my teenage years, got in shape around 20 and have been a regular in the gym ever since. I very much enjoy pushing my body but as we all know, the gym can get tired. I also play racquetball almost weekly.

Anyway enough of that. I lucked out and the all LI jam is happening right by me in a couple of weeks. I will hopefully be attending day 2 so maybe I will see some of you there. I am nowhere near far enough along to partake, but I imagine it will be inspiring to see some real life action. Been spending the last couple of weeks reading reading reading everything I can about parkour, and focusing on grip and balancing exercises. I figure a few weeks of that and practicing the basics like rolls and other minor techniques are the best way to prepare.

Anyway, I can't wait to get out there and join you guys; what some of you are able to pull off is truly humbling. I hope to count myself among you someday  :D
