With our August 2017 magazine, we celebrate our 100th issue of Women’s Running. As a brand, we have always aimed to inspire everyone to try running and embrace all the positive energy it can add to your life. We’ve put our best foot forward in providing women with the tools to step up to the start line, achieve their goals and reach the best, strongest, bravest version of themselves.
We’ve heard countless stories of overcoming adversity, making it through tragedy, hitting personal bests in running and in life, losing weight, coming back after having kids and thousands of other examples of triumph. In short, the women’s running community—Team WR—is strong AF, and we, the editors, aspire to be like each of you every single day. And although we’ve sometimes missed the bar and fallen short of what the women runner hopes to see from our brand, we’ve picked ourselves up, with your unconditional support, and aimed higher the next time—just like in running.
In this video, we look back at our humble beginnings, the issue that changed everything and what we hope to achieve in the next 100 issues. Grab the tissues just in case—we all had to. Thank you, runners, for making this journey not only possible, but better than we ever dreamed it would be. VIDEO: Oliver Baker
