MY RUNNING LIFE

For famed designer and architect Wayne Hemingway, running provides valuable time spent alone and a chance to be creative

INTERVIEW

I ran my first marathon – I think it was called the British Marathon – in 1979, when I was 18. It went through Manchester and Bolton. It was in our last year at school and it was at the time when running was first becoming a popular sport. We just decided – a group of friends and I – to do it. My girlfriend (now my wife) was due to meet me at the end. But she was late, and I remember finishing and being absolutely freezing. They wrapped you up in bin bags back then, and I had nothing else to go over the top of me, waiting around in the cold. Though we’re still together now, it was almost the end of our relationship!

About Men's Running

Variety, as they say, is the spice of life and when it comes to running nothing could be truer. Whether novice or veteran, once you’ve got your running shoes on the world opens up to you unlike it does for any other sport. If you just want to pound the pavements you can start the moment you step out the door, either following a beaten path or taking a psycho geographical approach to an area. Or you can head off into nature and run the trails, marked or unmarked, and experience the unique challenges they have to offer. At this time of year those who prefer their runs organised can enter multiple events every weekend – from tiny attendance 10Ks to mass participation marathons – and build up quite a medal collection in the process. And if a marathon isn’t quite long enough for you, the growing number of ultra events means your endurance ambitions are well catered for. Then there are the OCRs, charity dashes, duathlons, triathlons and of course your local parkrun. All of which add to the diversity you enjoy when being part of the running community, whatever your ability. Our aim at Men’s Running is to cover all of these bases and offer a balanced view of what it is to be a runner and the issues and topics that affect and interest us all. Drop us an email on mensrunning@wildbunchmedia.co.uk and let us know how we’re geting on – we’d love to hear from you.
