Parkour
 
I don't get it. And, I certainly wouldn't ever try it. But I will admit its impressive to watch at times.

Any of you young guns into this?

I can't see parkour without thinking of this

I always watch. I'm fascinated by it. if I were younger, I'd be inclined to take it up, or at least try it out. I think gymnastics training is a must. After that, I think you'd need extremely high confidence in your shoes; one slip could mess you up good.

As far as the activity itself goes, to me it feels like almost a sport of sorts, except I hate "sports" that are scored by judges and I don't know how else parkour could be scored. Other than that, it would be a great way to run from the cops.

Haha...I thought of that too!


But for the real thing, some of those jumps and flips are amazing. I know if I ever tried it, I would probably break both legs, an arm, my collarbone, and tear multiple ligaments. I'll just stick to watching it occasionally.

It's amazing.

Until it's not. Then it's just pain.
