Freerunning and well-spent youth

My very dear friend Derk and I used to run around jumping off of things in university. UBC endowment lands circa 1989 -- tree stumps and the sand banks behind the Museum of Anthropology mostly. I was never particularly good at it, jump up and down kind of thing, but still remember that time period as the "best shape of my life" and something lost that might one day be found. So, it is with some vicarious joy that I watch Derk's son Justin perfecting the art of freerunning. Here he is with his friend and parkour conspirator Liam tearing it up in the Kootenays.
