Like the Wind | Number 38


In issue 38...

At Like the Wind, we talk a lot about challenges. These range from what might be called the stereotypical challenges of running - time or distance goals, new world records aimed for - to the deeply personal, social, racial and economic challenges of breaking new ground. barriers in order to realize his potential as a runner.

In issue 38 of the magazine, we are proud to share many stories of challenges faced around the world, chronicling the achievements and aspirations of runners from extremely varied backgrounds.

We celebrate Tigist Assefa's Berlin Marathon achievement by speaking to other women who ran that day. They share with us their admiration for the Ethiopian and their own story from Sunday September 23. Meanwhile, in California, Laos-born Youa Giglini talks to Chad Sullivan about the challenges she faced growing up - poverty, global conflict and domestic violence - and the athletic challenge of running Western States.

In the Swedish wilderness, we discover what made Pernille Otto attempt to break the world record for running on a treadmill for six days. And in the English Midlands, clinical psychologist Professor Benjamin Mast shares the challenges faced by a dementia patient and his wife, who used parkrun to find a sense of physical accomplishment and community.

You might not think that simply getting outside is a challenge, but unspoken prejudice and the stereotypical image of "outdoor activities" mean that for many non-white communities, it is. Simon, editor of Like the Wind, spoke with a new organization, Opening up the Outdoors, about how they are working to make the outdoors a more equitable space.

Like the Wind readers can travel the world through our pages. In issue #38, we head to the heat of Austin, Texas for a series of 5K road races photographed by Matt Bradford. The streets of a historic Sicilian village provide the backdrop for writer Adharanand Finn's story of an Italian institution and its festival atmosphere. Tom Reynolds and Dan King find balance in the rugged landscapes of Scotland's Knoydart Peninsula.

At Like the Wind, we're also committed: We're committed to sharing running stories from unique and diverse voices from around the world. Once again, we are blown away by the quality of the writing, illustration and photography on our pages. We hope you will be too.
