{parkour}

i remember a couple of years ago when someone first introduced me to the wonderful endless black hole that is parkour and free running videos on youtube and it absolutely blew my mind. i know it's kind of old news, but i still get really excited watching it. probably because one of my favourite dreams is one where i just run and run and run and i can jump over anything and i'm fast and i'm virtually unstoppable. and that's kind of exactly what parkour is.
{thanks my special agent for reminding me of the last video! i can't believe i didn't include it the first go round!!}

  1. Love this - they're so fluid! I saw a show in London about this time last year called 3Run, it was amazing to have them do all these tricks around you. :)

  2. One of my friends does parkour and I am sooo jealous of him! I cannot even do a cartwheel. I always ask him to jump and flip off things for me.

  3. I want you to know that I right now have a little person who is running and jumping around my kitchen (hopefully she doesn't start swinging from the bannisters) - if you could have only heard her comments as we were watching these videos...

  4. Ok...I know I've heard of this....but holy crap! These guys are flying, it hurts my stomach a little. Maybe 'cause all I'm thinking about is the incredible risks they're taking. They must have 9 lives.

  5. I am a runner in real life and my best dreams are where I am running. I'm not breathing hard, I can't feel my legs. Running over wet sand is like floating on clouds. Also...
