Caballo Blanco has run his last
Like many who read Christopher McDougall's "Born to Run," I became fascinated by the mythical figure that was Caballo Blanco, or Micah True. He lived and he ran in the Copper Canyons of Northern Mexico where he could be close to the Tarahumara and their secrets for seemingly unending running. Last month the ultrarunner went out for a run and never came back. His friends found him lying dead in the wilderness he so loved.
The New York Times has written a truly wonderful story about the man and his life. He was an exceptional man who lived a life unique.
