HAPPY NEW YEAR! In the spirit of self-re­newal that’s com­mon at this time of year, you’ll no­tice a few dif­fer­ences in this is­sue, as we’ve re­freshed the de­sign and sprin­kled in a few new ideas.

But rest easy, loyal read­ers! We will con­tinue to de­liver the best ad­vice on train­ing, nutri­tion, rac­ing, in­jurypre­ven­tion and gear. Colum­nists Sam, Paul and Jo are all still here, Rave Run is still at the front and I’m a Run­ner re­mains at the back.

The changes we have made are de­signed to make RW more use­ful and re­flec­tive of what’s hap­pen­ing in the sport. Be­cause run­ning is an in­creas­ingly so­cial ac­tiv­ity – whether via good old-fash­ioned hu­man con­tact or so­cial me­dia – you’ll find an ex­panded Hu­man Race sec­tion ( p23). We’ve beefed up the Coach sec­tion with new colum­nists fo­cused on run­ners of all lev­els and nutri­tion. We’ve also moved race list­ings out of the mag­a­zine to live solely on the RW web­site, since search­ing on­line does a much bet­ter job of find­ing a race to match each run­ner’s cri­te­ria. To balance this, we’ve in­tro­duced a new reg­u­lar called The Start List, a cu­rated list of the month’s must-do races (p108).

Most im­por­tantly: re­gard­less of how far or fast you run, this mag­a­zine is for you. If his­tory is any guide, there will be lots of opin­ions on how good/ id­i­otic the changes are, and I look for­ward to hear­ing them. We, too, have come a long way, but are al­ways striv­ing to do more.
