We are a unique running magazine made by runners, for runners. 116 pages of running stories, illustrated features and stunning photography. It’s not how to run, it’s #WhyWeRun.
In this issue we once again travel the globe finding and sharing stories of running adventures, stories that more often than not reveal the deep emotional connections running can spark. Two of our writers consider the intergenerational bond: US ultra legend Bob Becker raced the inaugural Mt Gaoligong Ultra on the China/Myanmar border and recalled his own father’s wartime heroics in the same location. Meanwhile, explorer and athlete Ian MacNairn tells us the story of his quest to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps through the Moroccan mountains.
Celebrated British ultra-runner Ellie Greenwood opens up to Hilary Matheson about how injury has prompted her to take stock of her current capabilities, and not get tied up in the emotions of comparing past glories with the here and now.
Taking running beyond the purely physical, our writer Julia Chi Taylor reveals how she shed her possessions and now runs and lives as a Nomad, following her “inner voice”. We also look at the social side of running in Danielle Mustarde’s story of moving to a new city and connecting with an LGBT running group.
We also catch up with documentary maker Billy Yang, whose films about runners, their lives and their desires allows these individuals to share their motivation with a wider audience. Motivation takes many forms, of course. We’re fortunate enough in this issue to chat to Mark Thornberry, a British ultra-runner facing an uncertain future but who is harnessing the determination he uses in each 100-miler to approach his medical diagnosis with admirable strength and honesty.
So while our everyday running may be all about the stats, our contributors remind us we lace up for so many more reasons than a new PB.
Because Like the Wind is a good old ink-and-paper title, there are a limited number of copies. When they are gone, they’re gone forever. Furthermore, the magazine is skill-fully printed on uncoated FSC accredited paper. We care at least as much for the planet as we do for running on its surface.
