Art of Motion Boston

DSCF2463 Yesterday,  Boston hosted the Art of Motion Free running and Parkour tour.  Jung brought the girls down and we had a burger at B-Good burgers in Downtown Crossing before going back to watch the Free Runners.  DSCF2452

By the time we got back there were any good places to stand so we couldn’t see the whole course.  After looking around I realized that no matter where you stood, you could only see about 1/3 of the course.  It was a lot of fun though. 

The girls loved it.  They were jumping over the flower beds in City Hall Plaza and when we went to get on the train to go home, weDSCF2458 spent an hour outside of the station running up the pyramid walls.  Ally really liked it.  She was born in the year of the monkey and loves climbing and jumping, so this was right up her “alley.”

Jung was only wearing a hoodie and didn’t bring a jacket for me and it started to get pretty cool so we missed the Parkour stuff, which I tend to like the concept of more than free running.  Jung likened free running to gymnastics and I totally agree.

  1. I love this stuff. I can easily see myself trying it and falling of a wall and impaling myself on a fence.

  2. The guy in the bottom picture jumped on the car in the bottom left of the picture. He slipped and may have broken his ankle. They took him away in an ambulance.

  3. That looks like fun! I would rather be a spectator than participant, but still….fun! I’m surprised they did it outdoors. Takes some guts to look down at that pavement.

    • It is kind of in the philosophy to do it outdoors. To use what is there as an urban playground. It is one of the reasons they chose Boston and City Hall Plaza specifically.
