Ultra Legend Micah True Found Deceased in New Mexico

Just wanted to offer a moment of silence for Micah True, also widely know as "Caballo Blanco". True, renowned in the ultramarathon community and made famous in Christopher McDougall's "Born to Run," was found in the New Mexico wilderness near the Gila National Forest, after failing to return from a planned 12 mile run four days ago.

Like so many others, I was inspired by this lone and yet passionate runner and race director. I hope there will be some solace for his family and friends in that his death, though untimely, came in pursuit of his passion.  Run in peace, Caballo Blanco.
