I love Parkour, it's really the first activity I felt comfortable in after trying football, basketball, baseball, etc. and I've been hooked for almost 2 years now. But now I'm swimming and honestly I think I like it just as much as Parkour, which is where my dilemma is. I know I'll never be a member of The Tribe or be sponsored by Urban Freeflow in a million years, but with swimming (and I don't want this to sound like I'm bragging) I'm actually good at it. I'm coming close to breaking a minuet in my 100 breaststroke and I'm swimming 26 seconds in the 50 freestyle and this is only my first year of doing it. I know there are a ton of swimmers much better than me and its a slim chance I'll ever make the Olympic or World Championship time trials, but I think if I dedicate a lot of time to my club team and my varsity highschool team and in college later on there's a possibility I could make it. So I guess I'm going to have to make a choice on whether I want to dedicate all my time to swimming and chase after my goals in that or do both and still be able to do Parkour, but kinda give up on my goals in swimming.
So to not just make this a blog, I guess I'll ask you guys what you think about this, and if anyone has a similar experience, what choice did you make?
