So... just starting out and.
« on: September 20, 2010, 02:25:15 AM »
I feel ridiculous.

I'm old(er), out of shape, and basically woke up one day and wanted to learn a new skill.  I had seen parkour in movies, a lot of youtube clips, and never once did I look at it and go "That's for me!"

But, I remember a story I heard...  maybe I'm too old to start something.. but in ten years I can be good at a new skill.. or not be better at anything.  One way or the other I'LL STILL BE TEN YEARS OLDER.

So.  I got up, started running, began dieting. I remember all the beautiful things I've seen these guys and girls do and I said "why isn't that me?  No one was gifted anything, they fought for it..."

I've worked hard before, but this is such babysteps for me.

Going to the park tommorrow.. running again. Going to.. just try something.

pleasure to make everyone's acquaintance.

Hey - Have you checked out the "over-30" board? A lot of folks on there started at the same place you are now. We're all still old, but now much more in shape. http://www.americanparkour.com/smf/index.php/board,145.0.html
