Contributor Spotlight – Rick Arikado

We are hugely grateful to the contributors that help us make each edition of the magazine. Without their imagination and generosity LtW wouldn’t exist. Our thanks go out to the writers, but also to the illustrators who create the beautiful images that accompany our stories.

We spoke to Rick Arikado, from Vancouver, Canada, whose work was featured in issue #5 of the magazine. He told us about his work and gave us an insight into what fuels him to run.

LTW: Why do you run?
RA: I run for peace and solitude.

LTW: Tell us about your work that we published in Like the Wind
RA: It was a note I wrote to my wife for her birthday.

LTW: What would your ultimate adventure be?
RA: I would love to run the trails of Chile and Patagonia.

LTW: What is your favourite running moment (either yours or historical)?
RA: That would be in 2015 when I finished the Tahoe 200.

LTW: Do you have a favourite running quote?
RA: “I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.” Douglas Adams
