Ep. 27
"Pushing The Limits On Running "

or How To Open a New Door to Sharing

with Mau Díaz and nils arend

“What I want to say is that sharing an adventure or an experience is what makes it worth. I could do it on my own, and it would be this super introspective adventure, but if you get to leave it with someone or with more people, that’s definitely a game changer for me. For me that’s a big driver, and what makes me happy: to be able to open it, share it, and have a shared experience.”
– Mauricio Díaz.

A few months ago, May 2022, Mau Díaz and Nils Arend decided to run the width of the Baja California Peninsula in one day, from Todos Santos to Cabo Pulmo (140 kms). They knew it would be a challenge, but they never imagined how far this experience would push their physical and mental boundaries. This is a conversation between these two running legends about an incredible adventure that brings to bear the significance of shared experiences.


This conversation is also a preview of an upcoming experience this upcoming January with Aire Libre Running. Make sure to subscribe to our newsletter to learn all the details.


Mau Díaz is the co-founder of Aire Libre Running

Nils Ahrend is the founder of The Speed Project.

About Like The Wind

SUGi is a people-powered platform on a mission to empower people to invest in nature and restore biodiversity.


SUGi offers authentic rewilding that connects anyone anywhere to Nature and delivers results that are trackable, transparent, and visible in a matter of months. Their objective is to show that forests do not have to be far-flung nature reserves, isolated from human life by spreading the message that we can grow them right in our own backyards, even in cities. Vacant lots, abandoned sites, and landfills can be repurposed; parks, watercourses, and parking lots can be adapted. SUGi turns unused space into a perfect habitat for birds to nest, for fruits to grow, for fresh & cooler air to circulate, and for people to feel healthy and whole.


Since May 2019, they have planted 104 SUGi Pocket Forests around the world. That’s much more than 133,000 trees!






Alex Dickinson is a writer, runner, and a yoga and meditation teacher. He approaches running and yoga practice with a similar mindset—as ways to connect mind and body, explore internal and external landscapes, and simply feel better. He finds the pairing of the pursuits is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s his mission to share the gifts of these practices fairly and equitably, with a great deal of respect for the roots of the practice and those who have passed it down the generations.
