My subscription copy of Runner's World comes a little late so I missed the earlier mails but it looks though I'm alone in regretting the changes?
What's up?
Well the print seems smaller and harder to read (I'm MV60)
There are great blocks of text without guide marks (eg pages 26 & 27, 48 & 49, 68 and 69)

Worst of all is the race diary
has been my main reason for buying the thing for the last 8 years

The information given is reduced
- I specifically like to know if there are showers or refreshments and what the memento is likely to be.

The size gives me a headache

I find difficulty in distinguishing the icons.

I do like the layout for "Worldly Wise" and "Redeeming Features" (Just to show I'm not actually Victor Meldrew) And it's good to have a cover pix that isn't an obvious model running in bright sunshine!

Oh well - I guess things have to change but I'm not sure I shall continue to subscribe

Short of totty this month. A quick scan reveals only about 4 pages. This month I will have to go out and buy porn-for-cowards aka Nuts with an inevitable special feature on Abi Titmus (do bears sh*t in the woods ?)

Confusion resulting from reading two mags on the same day. The ad in question must have been in the mag that came with the newspaper. It was a child in lots of make-up advertising women's running kit.

Glad it wasn't in RW!
