    I can't say I wish to learn it,

    for I have been learning it for the past two years. I can consider myself a freerunner. At least one at an intermediate level that has mastered quite a bit of what he can at this point in parkour. I actually live near the Cleveland area if anyone wants to learn.

    I would /love/ to learn parkour.

    But three things stop me: 1) Money. Lessons cost a crapload. 2) In my area, there's not much to jump around on. No railing or high buildings. Quite a boring landscape. 3) My height. Theoretically, I /could/ use some of my environment. If I were taller. Being 5"2 and a cruddy...
