In issue 34...
 
As runners, we all know the benefits of getting in shoes and running. Whether it's breaking a speed record or creating much-needed thinking space, every race seems to have its own 'magical powers', no matter what mood you were in at the start.
 
But while these solo adventures reset the body and mind, sometimes it's the people around us who create the conditions that allow us to continue. In Issue 34 of Like the Wind, we examine the power of connection and community for runners and in running events around the world.
 
LTW is on the side of the road for the London, Toronto and Berlin marathons, and we soak up the buzzing, confetti-filled atmosphere of the race team cheer zones, supporting marathon runners through the tough final miles. . We go back to the beginnings of the legendary “ Mile 21” from London and trace the common ethos of running teams around the world, as well as the ties that unite them. We also visit the Outrunners, a team, club, charity and youth outreach program based in east London, whose aim is to ensure that no young person is left behind, whether in life or during a race.
 
Meanwhile, journalist Lela Moore meets with athletes with disabilities seeking equity in competitive sport. She tells stories of individual determination and shared effort, building communities, and how the running world accepts these athletes.
  
In Canada, Stephanie Ouimet tells the story of an injured woman she met when she was an ultra commissioner and how she reunited the runner with her worried family. In Wales, Nick Herbert beautifully recounts how teaming up with a comrade during his FKT attempt not only strengthened their friendship, but also connected him to history and soul. of the communities they passed through. And in the Dolomites, we meet the family whose restaurant is in the heart of a mountain ultra.
 
Community and connection go beyond events and challenges - London-based researcher Sophia Skyers takes us on her journey as a runner, which saw her take up the sport at the age of 60 and embrace technology to the point to create shared spaces online for like-minded runners to coexist.
 
We all know "that race" where we feel like we're alone against the world...but while running is all about putting one foot or blade in front of the other, our sport is about community - and it is these connections that we celebrate in Like the Wind.
 
Whether you're on the trails, tracks or sidewalks in your neighborhood, we hope this issue inspires you to run or share your story with us.
