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.
