So...we had a very wet christmas.  It rained friday, saterday and sunday, leaving Port Huron almost snow free.  It was snow free enought to rally the dorment pk urges of four traceurs.  I'm feeling it.  The other guys are probally too.  If the weather stays as is, I'll definately be back out, wednesday at the latest.

Parkour And Freerunning / Ever think that parkour is like driving?
« on: December 12, 2005, 08:51:40 AM »
Many people drive for many different reasons.  People drive to relax/enjoy themselves, people drive to get from place to place, people drive to compete, and people drive just to be free.  Its rather incredible how much these two have in common.  To think that both could become an everyday ordinary activity, it’s astounding.  I’m about to speak from personal experience, but I know this is something that has occurred to everybody.  Right after I got my license I realized that I could just go.  No matter what I was doing, I could stop that, get in my car and just go.  That is freedom on a very extreme level, leaving obligations and whatnot behind.  Parkour does the same thing for me.  Those I train with will never say we compete, but we do.  This kind of competition ends not in insults but in the progression of both persons.  To finish up this brief illusion, I must say that both Parkour and Driving make me feel good.  It’s the physical trigger and release of endorphins (on a bio-chemical level) but its also having peace of mind.
