Mujer Tarahumara/Rarámuri que ganó la carrera de 10 km de OXXO sin traje de licra, botellitas de agua, vicera [ed.: visera] de neopreno o tennis Nike. Un orgullo de nuestra raza y un mensaje de humidad [ed.: humildad] para todos nosotros.

Muki runningRoughly translated:

“This Tarahumara/Rarámuri woman won the OXXO 10 km run without [the benefit of] lycra suit, bottles of water, a baseball cap or running shoes. [She is] A pride of our race and a message of humility for us all.”

That’s right.  She won it wearing a dress and sandals.

Thanks D for posting this on your FB page.
