Extreme Parkour

I’m not athletic at all. I like quieter pursuits such as walking my dog, reading, gardening, looking at the stars.

Maybe that’s why I find more athletic activities so amazing. I really enjoy watching videos of parkour, or free-running. What is parkour?

Parkour is a physical and mental art/discipline in which runners train with the intent to develop their mind and body in order to overcome and/or interact with obstacles in urban and natural environments in the most intelligent and physically challenging manner. Parkour movements include running, balance, vaulting, rolling, climbing, and jumping. Movements from other physical disciplines are often used. 

Here is an amazing video of free runners:

You think that is amazing? Check out this free-running Ukrainian dog named TreT:
