Micah True was found dead

I'm totally bummed for his family.  His wife is friends with some of my running friends and I am on the group email list. I feel so devastated for her.

No one knows what happened except that he was out for a 12 mile run.

Crazy and scary.

  • I got another email that says it looks like a heart attack.  He had water next to him.  His ultrarunner friends are carrying him out.

    I hate thinking about how healthy runners get heart attacks.

  • I am very saddened by this news.  I thought he'd pop up out of some random cave and wonder what all the hubbub was about.  He was an inspiration to thousands of people - the running community lost a great role model.

    I thought the same thing. Very sad, though.

  • How awful for his family :(  I also agree with Kat.  Devastating.  
  • How terribly sad. Thoughts and prayers for his family and friends. I was so hoping this would have a different ending.
