He did still run the occasional race. In 1993, he entered one of his favorites, the Leadville Trail 100, a punishing 100-mile push through the icy streams and boulder-clogged slopes of the Rockies. The very up-and-down of it was a killer, the altitude as high as 12,600 feet. Runners generally needed 18 to 30 hours to finish.

The story of Micah True, a.k.a El Caballo Blanco, is incredible. If you haven’t read Born to Run by Christopher McDougall, it’s worth every penny.
