Hey, Spence!

Thanks for replying to my post!  Sorry it's taken *me* so long to write back, though.  I got on & seen your post like the day after you wrote it, but got into reading all sorts of other stuff on the forum, & never replied.  Then, as fate would have it, I met with a whole slew of "obstacles" in my life, heh, so training, at least physically, got put off again.  =/.  I wish I would've stayed with it, though; I think of I could have, it might've helped me deal with everything else.  Nevertheless, I am trying to focus again, & have been doing a little training again.  My biggest obstacle so far, as far as the pk goes, has actualy been my shoes, of all things.  I have such hard to fit feet; I'm like a ladies 5-6.  Most shoes geared to pk or really even any good for pk, seem to be all mens, & my feet are too small to cross over & wear a men's shoe.  I did initially look for just a good running shoe, but almost everything was too narrow for my feet!  Finally foumd some Brooks tnat seem to fit, but those are reallly expensive for doing amy real pk would so tear them up right away.  I have actually just been working & walking in them right noe, with some light running, just to see if they are even right for my body.  I hesitated with them b/c the heel is sobig.  Im used to a little flatter shoe.  This one has lots of cushion, & a 12mm drop.  I have looked at Feyues, & it looks like they do come small enough, according to size chart, but I've read a lot of contradictory opinions, unfortunately, over whether or not these are good / safe for beginners.  Blah!  What do you think??

Anyway, I'm hoping to come down & train with you guys sometime soon, regardless of the shoe situation.  I want to use the gym, & excited to come meet everyone.  :).  I know school is starting now, though & there will probably be a lot going on down there.  Are you guys still planning on making time for pk training through the next few weeks?  When I come down,  it will either be on a Tuesday or over the weekend.  Let me know what yall's schedules are looking like!

What up LA traceurs!  I am new to Parkour, & looking for some locals to train with.  I am just starting out, & as such, my primary focus right now is pretty basic-- strength, endurance, conditioning & basic foundational moves & techniques.  I don't even have any background in running, so that is all fairly new to me too.  I do have a background in gymnastics, though, & that has come in handy, but I've pretty much picked up what little pk I know from you tube videos, lol.  I'm not a real big fan of sitting around online, though, so I could really use a partner!

I've seen quite a few posts from the Lafayette area, & it looks like there are also posts from the Ruston & Monroe areas.  Anybody from Shreveport/Bossier area, or NWLA?  (I also travel down to around Natchitoches once in a while, so if you're near there, or somewhere btwn here & there, give me a shout!  Maybe we can meet up when I come that way.)

Hey, MrMutt; you still in Bossier?  If you're still in the area & looking for people to train with, shoot me an email or drop me a reply on here.  I'm just across the river in the Port City.  ;)

Hello, all!  My name is Stephanie, 30/F, and I live in Shreveport, LA.  I am new to Parkour, having only just learned about it in Dec. or Jan.  I have a background in gymnastics & dance, but haven't really been active in either (or much of any athletics) for quite some time.  I am looking to get back in shape & essentially "re-dedicate" myself to a healthy & vigorous life again.

I am looking for someone local to train with on a regular basis, or at least a group of semi-local traceurs to connect & meet-up with on occasion!  If you're in the area & would like a partner, please contact me via email!

-Steph  :)
