On page 98, BBC newspresenter Sophie Raworth talks about hereight-year journey from non-runner tomultiple marathoner and finisher in theMarathon des Sables, the brutal multi-day racein the Sahara. That’s a fitting way to introduceour Transformation Issue, designed to helpyou chase down your running, or life, goals.On page 38, there’s a feature on how you canimprove your speed with just a few tweaks toyour training, no matter what your age, abilityor experience.
