'Global running stories'

Like the Wind brings together stories for, by, and about people who run. This isn't a magazine about how to run — but why. The perfect place for those looking for running community and/or inspiration to lace up their shoes and get outside, whether for the first time or just the first time in a little while...

Issue #39 is a special one, marking 10 years of LtW. As editor Simon Freeman writes in the opening pages of this edition, 'Had we published four issues each year for a decade, we'd be publishing LtW #40 on our 10th birthday. But in 2015 we only published three editions. ... Our journey stalled. Life's challenges became too much'. 

The pair took a break at this time, missing one issue in the otherwise quarterly cycle due to a period of personal difficulty. But, much like with running, founders Simon and Julie found they were stronger than they'd realised — they kept putting one foot in front of the other — and so Like the Wind continued.

As a way of further celebrating that perseverance and dedication to both publishing and running, a special fortieth edition has been released along #39 and is available to subscribers and the lucky few who pick up a copy direct via the LtW website.

Cheers then, to 10 years and being happily back on track.

Well, I finally found community...' READ MORE
