Go ahead and post your thoughts/feelings on training yesterday.

I am extremely happy to have made it to this practice. It's like passing another milestone for me.

The last time I was in Decatur, all I could really do was walk around and watch Akil and Max as they astounded me, but this time was different. I pushed my mind to practice techniques that, until now, I was to afraid to try.

The running leap across the gap at the parking garage, rail to rail precisions, all sorts of varied jumps and stops on 'The Gigantic Magnolia' among others. I had such a great time there, and can't wait to do it again.

What are some of your (guys'/girls') opinions?

Yea buddy, it was a great time! You looked like you had been training there for years. I really liked the positive group attitude.

Already I have new ideas on how to expand and improve circuits. I look forward to next time.

No, that was my third time being there. The best part was over dinner, traceu(rs/euses) have the most insane discussions while eating...lol.

Yeah that session was so great. Whoever didnt go really missed out on something that they will never get the opportunity to go to again. :P

Okie dokie, well I talked to that guy who took all those pictures and he's working on getting everything formatted and processed so we can have them.

"That would be helpful. I don't have any immediate non-editorial uses in mind (other than "look at these cool, athletic people in Atlanta") but who knows where they could go in ten years. Maybe names and email addresses in case some photo shoot comes up and I would ask some of the participants to model for a project. That way, I can also keep people posted on the edited versions being posted."

That's what he wrote to me...so I don't know how you feel about letting him use those pictures for whatever. but I personally don't mind, after all, he was nice enough to take them.

If you want I can give his email: -email-

or I can get a list of the 7 traceurs who don't mind their pictures being used.

i suppose i don't mind either. although it'd be nice to actually see the pics first and then deciding whether or not to give permission to put them out in public :P
if you need email addies to give him: -email-

Anybody have a goal for next time? I'd really like to make that standing precision on the Magnolia branches. Also QM up the wall of the parking deck (where we cat traversed) then at the top (if comfortable) would be fun.

the running leap in the parking garage where we were at the end of our training.... so close yet so far!!! XP

i'll also be running up the huge wall that brian got after his 3rd try...... okay, maybe i'll save that one for my next life when i'll hopefully be taller :P

Hm... personally, I'd like to just get better all around since this has really been my first week of doing much of anything parkour related.

But if I were to choose something specific, I would say that I want to make the (small) standing precision on the Magnolia

Rayne, I think you can do it next time! Your balance and especially quietness are already very good.

Krys, we could always toss you up there. :)

I think Max and I can each hold one of your feet and toss you pretty high if we get it in sync.

Thanks for the pics, Lou, they look great.

There should be a bit more on the way.
