I'm very pleased to have Maria Walton as my guest on this episode. Maria isn't just a runner...and not just a marathon runner. She's an ultra marathon runner with a story that is at times heartbreaking, at times triumphant, but always inspirational.
If you're into the running world, then the name Micah True may be familiar to you (his story is the basis of the book "Born to Run" by Christopher McDougall). You'll hear the story of how Maria and Micah met, learn about their work together on the Ultra Caballo Blanco Ultra Marathon (a 50+ mile race up and down the hills of Urique, Mexico of which Maria is still co-race director), and find out how Mariah faced True's unexpected passing.
This is an episode not just for marathon runners but for anyone looking to be inspired by the beautiful mariposa.
