MENTE SANA EN CUERPO SANO / A healthy mind in a healthy body Jan 05, 2015
Desde hace más de tres años todos los domingos la Av. Arequipa se cierra al tráfico vehicular y desde las 7 am hasta la 1 pm se convierte en vía exclusiva para corredores, bicicletas, patines, scooters y skateboards. Esta avenida, una de las más importantes de Lima que va desde el Centro de Lima hasta Miraflores, durante estas horas se llena de decenas de miles de amantes del deporte sobre ruedas sin combustible, a veces familias enteras, y todos juntos sudan la gota gorda.

Llegando a Miraflores, en la Av. Diagonal frente al Parque Kennedy se levanta asimismo un estrado y un par de instructores dirigen los aeróbicos para quienes deseen seguirlos. El pasado domingo, el primero del año 2015, hice el recorrido con mi hijo mayor (corriendo) y un amigo suyo (skateboarder) hasta Miraflores, luego ellos siguieron hasta Barranco y yo me quedé en los aeróbicos por unos 30 minutos, luego tomé mi bicicleta y pedalée de regreso a casa, créanme, no saben lo bien que me sentí, el próximo domingo la repetición.

Lima no sólo es historia, buena comida y caótico tráfico, también tiene mucho movimiento cultural y cada vez se le da más impulso al deporte ... los antiguos griegos y los chasquis estarían muy contentos ...

For more than three years every Sunday Av. Arequipa is closed to vehicular traffic from 7am to 1 pm becomes the sole route for runners, bikes, skates, scooters and skateboards. This avenue, one of the most important in Lima that goes from downtown Lima to Miraflores, during these hours is filled with tens of thousands of sports fans on wheels without fuel, sometimes whole families, and together they sweat drop fat.

Arriving at Miraflores, at Av. Diagonal beside Kennedy Park, a podium is lifted and a couple of aerobics instructors lead for those wishing to follow them. Last Sunday, the first of 2015, I made the trip with my oldest son (runner) and a friend of him (skateboarder) to Miraflores, then they continued to Barranco and I stayed in aerobics for 30 minutes, then I took my bicycle and pedaled back home, believe me, don't know how good I felt, on Sunday repetition.

Lima is not only history, good food and chaotic traffic, also has much cultural movement and increasingly is given more impetus to sport ... the ancient Greeks and chasquis would be very happy ...
