And there are certainly other mountain runners--many of them impoverished Mexicans whose names have never been published in a running magazine-who have doubtlessly logged greater distances, at swifter speeds.
Trujillo is not the friendliest person to have ever jogged into an alpine forest, nor the most decorated. And all his records have been broken. But when it comes to mountain running-which, at its most irreducible, involves following rocky trails long distances into rockier mountains-Trujillo was the first champion, and in many ways the most irreducible.
He was-and is-a throwback, a man whose primitive and at times dangerous approaches to things like nutrition and equipment and training seem positively medieval by today's standards. Yet he and his throwback approach to what is, after all, a throwback kind of sport-lope through rugged terrain as fast as you can while you try to ignore things like lightning and lack of oxygen and the occasional hairy predator-are still spoken of with affection and even awe by the men and women of the sport today.
Meltzer and Carpenter, both professional runners, have Web sites and corporate sponsors.
Carpenter possesses, according to his Web site, a resting pulse of 33 and a VO2 max of He has no idea what his resting pulse is. Meltzer, Carpenter, and Horton are celebrities whose exploits and training regimens are studied and emulated.

Among a certain type of mountain runner, though-the older runner, the runner with an appreciation for pain and its transformative power, the runner who doesn't care for corporate sponsors and Web sites, the runner who remembers when mountain running was simply a matter of going higher, and harder, and faster than anyone else Among that community of runners-the hardest core of an unapologetically hardcore sport-it is Trujillo who inspires reverence. If he'd come along today, with the technology, and the popularity of the sport, and the emphasis on training and nutrition, there's no telling what he would have done.
Without intention, he invented the sport. The school's industrial arts teacher had decided it was time to start a track team, so he told Trujillo and five other skinny, shy, not apparently athletic boys to run from the school, past the town's ski area, up to the natural amphitheater that loomed to the east of town. This was Ouray's first track team. They ran for a mile and a half before they hit waist-deep snow.
Running up a mountain was difficult. Plunging through snow, breaking new trails was very difficult. Everyone stopped, except Trujillo. His father was a miner, 14th generation American, descended from Spanish conquistadors in New Mexico genealogy is another one of Trujillo's abiding passions. Trujillo is the oldest of 11 children, and it was that spring day that he found his calling. Trujillo ran joyously, after school, in the summer evenings, on weekends, whenever he could find the time.
He ran up and down trails that only animals had run before. Seen them hop? That's what I use for carving high ground at a fast pace. I cover real rough ground real fast.
I take it for granted. Trujillo hated it. I saw no point in seeing how fast you can run in circles. The point is to see how far you can go, to explore. He also won the state cross-country championship.

In college, at the University of Colorado, he was named All-American in cross-country, but it wasn't the same. It wasn't as much fun. And that's why he ran, for fun. Why else would anyone run? Running in college often involved a track, which he didn't like. And he didn't like the track meets or racing against opponents from schools he had little connection to.
He liked to race against himself, and the mountains. The coach discouraged running in the mountains altogether. And he complained to his runner about his eating habits. It was the fastest two miles I had ever run. He'd work from early in the morning until late afternoon, and then he'd run. Up White House Mountain, 10 miles and 6, feet of elevation, along mostly game trails, ancient mining trails, and no trails at all. He followed a single line of cow and calf elk up that trail once, summiting at the same moment as a mother and her calf. For short jogs, he'd take the Lone Widow route, 2.
He called them "H, T, and E runs. Here, there, and everywhere. You go. You just go. The same year, Trujillo broke his back in a mining accident. His third, fourth, and fifth lumbar were crushed. Two weeks later, he got fitted with a back brace. Trujillo told the examining physician that he wanted to start running again, as soon as possible. The doctor was skeptical. On August 6, , after spending a day working in Camp Bird Mine, he set out from his parents' front porch on Third Avenue, headed up the mountains that ring Ouray, ran over the 13,foot-high Imogene Pass and into Telluride, then not much more than a depressed mining town.
He covered the When he arrived, he was wearing only his shorts, T-shirt, and running shoes, and his friend who had promised to pick him up to drive him back to Ouray was nowhere to be found he had gotten lost. By the time his friend showed up, Trujillo had run into two other friends, and spent some time with the local priest. One of those men called the local newspaper, which published a story about the young man who had run over the mountain. Trujillo won the race, in Yes, he has encountered bear. Yes, he once stood face to face with a mountain lion.
