The Active Kollection
For the past five years and 19 issues, Like the Wind have asked themselves and their contributors why they run – and have been rewarded with stories and images of outstanding achievement, personal transformation and stunning geography from around the world. Running is not only a sport about being faster than your last race, but also a huge community that supports and welcomes individuals from ultra-marathoners to run/walkers to international elite athletes.
So perhaps it’s not surprising that running is breaking new ground in its inclusion of those who do not identify according to traditional gender norms. In this issue, they've talked and listened to runners and activists about how the sport is accommodating non-binary athletes, plus one transwoman tells them how running turned her life around.
And back to those international elite athletes… LtW editor Simon was granted an audience with Lance Armstrong, in which the former pro cyclist discussed running, but also didn’t shy away from talking about the controversy that dogged the latter part of his biking career. This is a genuinely fascinating interview.
The team's global travels this issue encompass the Netherlands, Australia, North America and the Bulgarian mountains, and renowned Danish photographer Mikkel Beisner shares his amazing shots of the 2018 Ice Ultra, an incredibly tough endurance event in severe weather conditions.
Closer to home, they meet the reader who set up a running group in his local park, and hear why one contributor simply can’t bear to throw away any of her old kit, even if it is falling apart.
And as one extra fifth-birthday treat, ultra-marathon king Dean Karnazes shares his thoughts about why ultra-running is so important to him.
So join LtW on their birthday as they bring the global running community to your fingertips.
