Art du Déplacement Chicago/Parkour Ways hosted a fundraiser event for the Philippines, hoping to help out the survivors of the recent Typhoon disaster. Some of the exercises we did focused on working together, and finishing as one, as well as struggling and feeling pain. All in respects to those affected by the typhoon. %100 of proceeds were sent out to help families and those in need.
It wasn’t until very recently that I did something about that issue. Training with glasses can be such a hassle, they could fly off at any given point, and the rattle during a run affects my approach to an obstacle, as well as worrying about these very problems takes away from the focus. I can’t train without glasses unfortunately, I’ve got a pretty high prescription.
I got all new glasses recently, it was about time I did. At the shop I saw these things called croakies. Adjustable strings that attach to your frames, keeping them on your face and not flying toward the concrete. Try them out, they’re not expensive, and they’ll rid you of that problem. I got them and my new frames won’t take as much a beating as my last pair. Haha!
I’m glad you enjoy the blog, and I hope the croakies help fix your problem. Train hard and train safe. *Poof!* =]

Many thanks to Chad and the Staff at the FoF Academy, and my friends for an awesome trip and much training.
