  • True’s run will continue in 2013
    ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — An ultra-marathon that honors the running traditions of a Mexican tribe will go on next year, even though its founder died last month in southwestern New Mexico. Ultra-runner Micah True’s body was found March 31 after he failed to return from a routine run. His agent, Scott Leese, says a foundation and memorial fund have been created to honor the 58-year-old. Leese says the Caballo Blanco Foundation will focus on True’s support for the indigenous Tarahumara of Mexico, their running traditions and the annual 50-mile-plus ultra-marathon through Copper Canyon. Nicknamed Caballo Blanco, True started the race in 2003 as a way to highlight the Tarahumara’s extreme running prowess.

  • Isotopes open 10th season at Omaha
    ALBUQUERQUE — To start the 2012 season, the Albuquerque Isotopes will become very familiar with the Omaha Storm Chasers and the Iowa Cubs. But it might take awhile for the Isotopes to get familiar with one another. The Isotopes, Albuquerque’s Triple-A franchise, throw out their first pitch on the road Thursday at Omaha. After an eight-game road swing to open the season, they will be home April 13 for eight games against those same teams. This will be season No. 10 for the Isotopes since making their debut in 2003. Since that time, the Isotopes have had three managers and two parent clubs, including their current Major League Baseball franchise, the Los Angeles Dodgers.
