More Parkour Videos

June 2, 2013 in Data Runner, Media, Parkour, Sports

Hi Everyone.

First, I just want to say thanks to all the early reviewers who have taken the time to review/blog about DATA RUNNER.

I did read something in one recent review by Ms. Nose in a Book that really caught my eye.

Something I found really interesting about this book was the weaving of Parkour into the story. Before reading this book I didn’t know what Parkour was and I am really intrigued by it. The book does explain Parkour throughout the story but I feel like it’s given to us through a more personal perspective through Jack’s narrative so I ended up Googling it to get more examples and even Youtube videos of Parkour. I feel like after doing that I have a deeper sense of what it is. I just love that it’s not just something that’s thrown in the book as a mention it was worked in really well and just adds another piece of depth to not only the story but to the character of Jack as well.

I’m so glad that this story was her entry point into the world of parkour, and in the spirit of her newfound interest in the sport, I thought it might be a good opportunity to post a few parkour videos for you guys. This one is a great compilation that’s been getting a lot of hits lately.

And this clip “Parkour Girls Lahijan 2013” was forwarded to me by the marketing and publicity manager at Diversion Books, who thought the idea of young Iranian girls tracing as a form of self-expression was right on point with the story…

That’s all for now, but be sure to check back soon for more. And thanks again to Ms. Nose in a Book and all the others for your honest reviews.
