The Unspoken Rules of Being a Badass: A Runner's Guide

Autopsy Says Micah ‘Caballo Blanco’ True Died from Heart Disease

The autopsy that was performed on ultramarathon runner Micah ‘Caballo Blanco’ True after his death has revealed that he died from heart disease.

While medical examiners couldn’t point to the cause of the heart disease, they said True’s left ventricle, which pumps oxygenated blood to the rest of the body, had become thick and was dilated.

Chemical tests showed that True was mildly dehydrated and had caffeine in his system. He also had some abrasions on his elbows, forearms, knees and shins.

True, a legendary type of character made famous in the book Born To Run, disappeared in the Gila Wilderness in New Mexico back in March. He was missing for several days before his body was found on March 31st.

May Caballo Rest In Peace!
