The Tarahumara in Mexico are renowned for their running ability. They call themselves “Rarámuri” (running people). To them, running a full marathon in a day is not a challenge.

When hunting a deer, the Tarahumara chase after it. A deer may be much faster than the Tarahumara, but does not have their endurance. The Tarahumara never worry even if a deer runs fast and disappears from their sight; they can track it by following its footprints and secretions. In a day or so, they eventually catch the deer after it falls from exhaustion from sprinting for such a long time.

Determination and perseverance have great power.
