Run in Peace, Micah True

Micah True, ultrarunner

There’s no way to adequately thank one of the great inspirations in the running world, Micah True, also known as Caballo Blanco (“White Horse”), who was found dead just hours ago. Micah, arguably the “star” of Christopher McDougall’s best seller, Born To Run, went out for a run on Tuesday and did not return. There’s no news at this moment about a cause of death.

As Micah would often say in signing off, “Run Free!”

Run In Peace, Micah.
