Issue #9 of Like the Wind truly demonstrates how running unites the world, whether you’re pounding suburban pavements or taking on a mountainous trail. This issue brings you 100 pages of raw emotions sparked by running, wherever on the planet those runners happen to be lacing up their trainers, including:
Somalia: Art is the cornerstone of Reinherd Kleist’s Olympic Dream, a graphic novel following a Somali athlete competing internationally and her family back home.
France: Meanwhile, in the mountains of France, Marion Clignet relives a tough ultra through snow and mud, not helped by a local farmer removing some vital direction signs.
Scotland: Up on the Isle of Arran, Cat Attfield shares her experience of a nine-mile fell race during which her ego suffered as much as her quads.
Whatever you run without, don’t run without Like the Wind: real stories from real runners, without gloss or filters – basically, why we all run.
Issue #8 of Like the Wind is a glorious celebration of running, packed from cover to cover with reportage pieces, personal anecdotes, breathtaking illustrations and stunning photography. We again bring you 100 pages of stories including:
THE HILLS ARE ALIVE
LtW writers and photographers follow hardy and determined cross-country teams vying for glory over London’s challenging Parliament Hill.
ALADDIN SANE, A GARMIN AND A BIT OF STRING
Deputy editor Imogen Lees argues that she can’t even run to the corner shop without starting her watch.
RUN, BREATHE, LAUGH, EAT, CHAT, REPEAT
Across the Atlantic, Lindsay Ford ran from Aspen to Vail with Jenn Shelton and Rickey Gates without expectations but ended up casting aside her preconceptions about how she would live her life.
Wherever you run, however far or fast, you are a runner: always a runner. Let’s all hope that many more people come to discover running and make our family bigger, stronger and more united.
