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.
SISTERS ARE DOING IT FOR THEMSELVES
In another Stateside story, American coach Heidi Boynton tells us how she has taught thousands of young girls to run without worrying about what they can achieve; instead just getting out there and crossing the line, helping friends along the way.
IF YOU GO DOWN TO THE WOODS TODAY
Another of our contributors running without fear is Simon Bagshaw, who recounts his attempts to run without stressing about the bears sharing his routes along the Canadian trails.
And finally, we’ve a story from Scott Partenheimer, who ran without clothes. His hilarious account of his naked 5km race may well see you casting aside your tights. Or possibly zipping up your jacket a bit tighter…
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.
Remember; because Like the Wind is a good old ink-and-paper title, there are a limited number of copies and when they are gone, they’re gone forever. 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.
