Freaked Out

The cover of this months RW features an alien. Has anyone else noticed the spooky absence of footprints, shadow and sweat? The model also seems to be suspended motionless about a foot above the ground.

Of course it may really be a lifesize helium filled balloon held in place by invisible threads but is it worth the trouble when there are real runners who could be used instead.



  • last months had the crapest running style I've seen...but then again she was pretty tidy ;~)
  • More importantly: where's my copy? Eh? Eh?
  • You have a point.

  • WombleWomble ✭✭✭
    And she's wearing lipstick.
  • Apparently my subscription has lapsed so it seems I wont be getting mine.

    First I heard about it was when I tried to get into race details here on the forum.

    Blimmin' cheek!
  • C'mon Womble, They always wear lipstick. No point kicking against the pricks as the Romans used to say.

  • Do you all mind? You're talking about the woman I love!
  • VoodsVoods ✭✭✭
    Never mind the lady/alien on the front cover - you're all missing the sports bra exposé.

    Maybe we could have a poll to decide which bra is best.

    <Vood sits and waits both for the inevitable Bra Poll and for the comments from the ladies for me lowering the tone :o) >
  • My copy has now arrived! Hurrah!

    And I too found the bra article most interesting and informative. That model has very nice eyes. Doesn't she?

    <Goes to recheck loveliness of model's eyes in privacy.>

    In the interest of balance, I am expecting an article on mens' support briefs next month ...

    Although knowing our luck, he briefs will be modelled by some pallid pigeon-toed skinny runner-type. Bah
  • or at least some highly illustrated article on that thorny question... "what to wear under lycra shorts ? "
  • To be honest if she was up for it I wouldn't say no, alien or not.
  • Did the woman at least have breasts?
  • the bra woman?
    small ones, but she's v slim so they look bigger

    the cover girl?
    more questionable

    I thought everyone wore lippy when they ran tbh?
  • VoodsVoods ✭✭✭
    OK, I admit it, I'm the only runner in the whole world who DOESN'T wear lippy!
  • VoodsVoods ✭✭✭
    Unless of course there are others out there.

    Maybe we could start a new trend - running au naturel!
  • Hey you guys ! I hope you observed that one of the photos is a mirror image. Detectable by close examination of the mole on her midriff or if you prefer, her hair do.

    Is this a test by RW to keep us on our toes or just another example of sloppy journalism?


  • NB I'm referring to the running bra model of course, not the cover photo of the alien.
