    Running from behind

    Hi,

    What is the meaning of "run from behind" please?
    The expression is frond in a part of Tadashi Saito's statements from Sony.
    "The first runner has to face the wind—sometimes, it's easier to run from behind..."


    Thanks

    Re: Running from behind

    It means to run behind another person. The first person faces the wind. You run behind that person and face no resistance from the wind.
