Piccies of VFers getting physical

Postby The Duke » Sun Mar 01, 2009 9:52 am

This thread is to post pictures of yourself doing your sport, activity, passtime, whatever it may be.

From Powerlifting to running to cycling to fighting to meditating to origami.

I've put it here rather than Members Pictures at The Wolfsters suggestion so that images are available to non VFers. If you are not comfortable with that then this isn't the thread for you.

So, lots of lovely action shots please.

Great idea.

Hopefully we can use photos here in VF publicity material unless people object? If you don't want to be famous and end up as a blurry cut-out on one of our t-shirt just PM me and I'll make sure you don't.

just want to say I think this is a positive & excellent idea and good choices of photos from the Duke and BGW.

Other sports that aren't here that I know people on here do: cycling, running, boxing, martial arts, climbing, swimming, roller derby, dance, yoga.

Thank you. :)

That pic is not from Stockholm though, but it could have been. The Stockholm archipelago is perfect for long distance ice-skating. However, this picture is from a place further north, outside Skellefteå.

Excellent timing, I just posted a vid of me doing one of my sports in my training log :) . The audio got canned but I probably won't get around to fixing that until later this week so for now here is the muted version:
