Christopher McDougall on The Daily Show

In case you missed it earlier: Christopher McDougall, author of Born to Run, was a guest on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart this week. Normally I'd embed the video below; however, since I've already written a review of the book, I added the video to the end of that post. You can check them both out here.

It was a great appearance. And best of all, Stewart really seemed to enjoy the book!

Chris is also scheduled to appear at my friend's travel bookstore in October for a book signing and a possible group run (in Los Angeles). If you're in the area, you should try to come by.

Having just finished Born to Run I was happy to see you revive this topic. Like you, I was a bit disappointed with the lack of photos. However, some snooping with Google turned up a web site for Caballo Blanco, and that led to a photo essay by Luis Escobar covering the 2006 race.

SPOILER ALERT: Both the links below have further links to a race report and results for the March 5, 2006 race that is described in the book. Folks who haven't yet read the book might want to avoid those links. But you can look at the Luis Escobar pictures without spoiling the surprise!

Caballo Blanco home page.

Luis Escobar pictures. All clickable. Be sure to click and enlarge the mission bell tower!

There are also links on the Caballo page for rematch races held in 2007 and 2008, with more links to literally hundreds of additional photos.

I only wish McDougall's segment on the show had been longer -- too brief (as you know). And did you notice that Micah True is one of the registered entrants at the Javelina Jundred in October?
