same team same dream

same team. same dream.

words: dan marrett, richard issa, and reggy vilimages: matt vernot & richard issa When discussing great American cities, Philadelphia isn’t often mentioned in the same breath as New York, LA, or Chicago. The limelight tends to shine on the energetic places; the places where humans go to get lost or found. The City of Brotherly Love is where people go to belong. It’s also where Richard Issa and Reggy Vil sparked a friendship, and through…

Our Malaysian FRND Udey’s journey with running started the same as many – he got into the sport to adopt a healthier lifestyle and lose some weight. He kept running past that goal – to podiums, medals, plaques, coaching high school, and starting his own run crew. We called him up to learn more and share his story.

words by: sierra asplundhimages by: sierra asplundh, diego lopez, claire brieva, & jeff gladstone I wake up on a cool March morning. I head to the bathroom to handle my business, brush my teeth, and head to my yoga mat. I haven’t realized in this moment that yoga is truly the only form of movement that I’ve consistently chosen for two years now above cross training and running. I begin my warm up of the…

words by: david jaewon oh and members of csrdimages by: david jaewon oh and carissa camp “Yo, it’s like a ghost town now” is a common phrase that we say to each other nowadays over texts or on zoom. It’s also often followed by “I miss us.” It’s ironic that, as a co-founder of my running crew, CSRD (Club Seattle Runners’ Division), I enjoy a solo run a lot. Probably because I find it extremely…

together on the trail

together on the trail

words and images by: north bennett A month under shelter, and the world calves in two: there is my home (comfortable and healthy, but anxious and sometimes claustrophobic) and there is the nation-world (too-big and in crisis, careening toward who-knows-what-end).

The trail has always offered a…

Words by: Brittni Hutton & Brandon Birdsong (a.k.a. 2 runners 1 sprinter) Images by: Austin Garza-Kilcullen If we did not live out of a van would this story be as cool? Probably not, but it is not about being cool. This story is about the journey, the experiences, the memories, and the blood, sweat and tears (mostly sweat) involved in preparing for one of the biggest races of my running career, the 2020 Marathon Olympic Trials.…

We took some time to speak to Serbian Utlra Marathoner Jovica Spajic before taking on the Atacama Crossing in Chile. Hey Jovica! Where are you now? What is your upcoming race schedule looking like? At the moment I am in Serbia and I’m going through my final preparations before my departure to Chile.
