At the end of last year the team behind Like the Wind magazine along with some wonderful friends opened a Pop-Up for a week.

The Epson Run Sense SF-810 GPS watch – first impressions

National Cross 2015

Yesterday I went to the National Cross on Hampstead Heath to watch thousands of runners do battle with the hills and mud.

The cult of Bill

The cult of Bill

A few years ago I met a man, called Bill. And he talked to me about the art, not the science of running. He told me about running by feel, about dedication, about consistency.
