Tarahumara

The Tarahumara, a "hidden" tribe of super-athletes, a pride not just to Mexico but to all the world, an example in sports, economy and humility to men and women of all races by men and women of a one of a kind race that runs unbelievable distances with no polyester running clothes, no water bottle, no tennis nike, just huaraches. Join this tribe to help each other learn from them, learn to run, learn to live.

Tan T Tarahumara Tribe

Tan T Eduardo, I can't find anything about this event and her victory. Do you have a source?

I also read Born to Run, and couldn't put it down. The Tarahumara are such admirable people.

Eduardo M and Marianne N encouraged this.

Thanks Eduardo, but there are some comments on the first link that say this is a hoax, and provided some links. What do you think of this?

Not a Hoax, her real name is Silvia Castillo Ramirez, she was interviewed and she does not know where the name Maria Salome came from.

I found the youtube video (http://youtu.be/_-hSV4e4KmI), but I don't speak Spanish, so my friend translated for me: ------------------------------------ Yes, She is real. Her name is not Maria.... how appeared before. Her name is Sylvia Castillo Ramirez. She is 23 years old, divorced, and has a six year old daughter. She lives in the city of Chiguagua and works as a domestic help (cleaning lady). She trains everyday at 6:00 a.m.for one hour an half. Her father who lives in the mountains is her coach. She has been running since she was five years old. She has been competing in marathons for the last three years, but this is the first time she competes in this particular one. She tried running with running shoes, but she finds them uncomfortable. She prefers to run with her sandals and ethic dress. Amazing. Very humble person. -------------------------------------------------
