Born to Run is a true story and as such, the characters in the book are real people. This post is a sort of a Google-ey “Where are they now?” for many of those who played a part in the book. Chris has been happily bouncing around the country promoting Born to Run.
For those interested in running, a good story, or writing nonfiction, Born to Run is a worthwhile read.
Matthew McConaughey will play the character Caballo Blanco in the upcoming film Born to Run, one of the film’s producers confirmed to Runner’s World on Wednesday. The movie is an adaptation of Outside contributor Christopher McDougall’s book of the same name.

And like Caballo Blanco, his final autopsy notes that he too died of “natural causes.” I can assure you one thing – dying from a heart attack due to prolonged, chronic structural changes in your heart is far from normal and further from what “natural” really is.
