In case you didn’t know it, storytelling is awfully important to me. I feel like there’s a strength in narrative that doesn’t compare to almost anything else. The same thing is true of community, which is why I love running and you guys so much.
A while back, I came across an absolutely amazing magazine called Like the Wind, and I was amazed at what I read. Instead of a typical magazine like Runner’s World, Competitor, or Running Times (all of which I love and read regularly, by the way), Like the Wind is about storytelling and community.
There aren’t how-tos and technical guides. There aren’t race reports. Like the Wind reads like a book of short essays, written by runners about the sport they love. It’s brilliant, and it’s literary.
On top of that, the magazine is printed on such high quality paper it might as well be card stock. This is a magazine in name only. Holding this thing is a pleasure–it’s a book. And you know the English teacher in me adores that, right?
So Who Wants a Copy?
Graciously, Like the Wind has provided me with a copy of their 4th issue and a framebale art print of the gorgeous cover (mine’s going in front of my treadmill, btw) for me to give away to one of my readers.
