CALMzine #25: The Marathon Issue

Welcome to Issue 25 of CALMzine. The London Marathon is fast approaching and we’re about to put some steps in your Spring with this running special.

We’re honoured to introduce you to some of The Runners taking on the ridiculous challenge of running 26.2 miles around central London for #TeamCALM and Heads Together on 23 April. If you’re wondering what Heads Together is, we’ve got you – we caught up with two clever young fellas, Prince Harry and The Duke Of Cambridge – they’ll let you know the craic.

As an experiment, we forced reluctant sprinter, very reluctant cold-water swimmer and occasional comedian Jack Rooke out of his clothes, into a dress and onto the mean streets of Finsbury Park; the cold lochs of Scotland; and around the walls of Pentonville Prison respectively. All for good reason, promise.

World-beating hurdler Colin Jackson had a few things to say in this issue: he told us the secret to looking 25 forever and urged us all to wear blue y-fronts in our next competitive run. That makes him sound like some bizarre, psychic personal trainer, possibly nicknamed The Clairvoyant Coach. But nah, the man has wise and practical things to say about your health based on actual evidence.

And we’ve linked up with CLASH magazine to launch Love Yourz, a series that will explore how bad ideas about success in the world of hip-hop can fuck with the heads of fans and artists alike. Enjoy and look after yourself.

You can read the Marathon Issue of CALMzine online or get your hands on a copy.
