Today’s Road Trip

As we have posted about before, one of the absolute greatest things about living in Patagonia is the ability to drive in any direction and see something new and beautiful.

Today we packed up the canine kids and headed for Cascada Los Alerces. The spring runoff is currently in full force.

The Rio Manso in all it’s majesty.

The river is green due to run off from the glaciers of Cerro Tronador.

Another shout out to Mother Nature for creating such splendid scenery.

    Nice pictures – that rio does not look very “Manso” to me (”manso” = tame)!

    ¬°Gracias Changcho!

    Most of the river is tame, except for this section.

    Saludos, Jamie

    I think you may have missed my point regarding the study which involved a Japanese half-marathon. All of the runners in that study were elite international athletes. Have you ever seen an elite runner compete in a typical high heeled running shoe?? I havent. As I say in the blog, most of them (if not all) compete in very light racing flats. These are much closer to being barefoot than they are to being in a cushioned road running shoe. Therefore we could leap to the conclusion (based on Liebermans work amongst others) that even in racing flats we would be more likely to forefoot strike than heel strike. This study from Japan is therefore an important one to include in any discussion of this nature.
