Remembering Micah True, Boulder Ultra Runner

Listen Now

Boulder ultra-runner Micah True was known to drop off the radar, and head for some remote canyons in northern Mexico. He’d be there for months on end, running and spending time with an indigenous tribe, the Tarahumara. True, who was 58, died last week, while on a run in New Mexico. He believed humans were made to run, a message he shared often after being featured in the best selling book “Born To Run.” Ryan Warner speaks with its author, Chris McDougall.
