The Women of Parkour

October 27th, 2008     by Catherine Hayday     Comments

I think Parkour is awesome. I loved watching it at the beginning of Casino Royale, thought Jump London and Jump Britain were great, and I’m looking forward to simu-playing it in Mirror’s Edge.

Maybe one of these days I’ll try running up a wall. Until then, I’ll be inspired by these women of parkour who talk plainly about what it’s like to be a woman in this sport — like the logistics of the kong vault, which reminded me of my own struggles with backwards breakfalls. Damned breakfalls.

The article is accompanied by a great video.
