I’ve been in dry, dusty, mountainous Mexico for weeks and I’m ready for the beach!
It’s pretty cool here though and I read Born to Run about barefoot running and the Tarahumara Indians just south of here in the Copper Canyons which is some of the most remote wilderness in the world. 80 year old guys can run 100 miles non-stop! A fellow called Caballo Blanco has organized an annual race in the canyon that draws the best ultra marathoners in the world and ALL the prizes and money goes to the indians.
There were over 80 internationals and 300 indians in the race this year.
So I’ve been running and thinking about doing the race next year.
Still, it an’t the beach and I can’t wait to get back to that warn Gulf Stream water!
See you at the beach!
