    Then you will like the recent issues.  One of the biggest standouts is the new photography.  Very well done.

     

    That is excellent news.

      I'm looking at the July issue right now and this is the first time in a long time that I actually want to sit down and read the damn thing.

       

      I've skimmed through it. Now it's sat unopened for 4 days. Pictures are good but no need to go back and none of the articles appeal to me..guess I'll just tap occasionally on their Twitter feed

        Finished the current issue on my commute this morning.  The articles on the Barkley Marathons and the cross country coach killed in the school shooting were both very good.  Even the article with New Balance shoe wearing Grandma was nice.

            Five positions that will save your legs on race day.  You won't believe number three!

            There was a point in my life when I ran. Now, I just run.

              I don't like the new format.  Pictures of someone's back shoulders is not appealing.  I'm guessing the magazine is phasing out.  Looking a lot like the quality of Running Times.  Too many pics and no content.  very frustrating. No more recipes which is a disappointment. The photography is poor at best. Not the magazine I subscribed to.

                Sorry for the delayed response. I've been... busy. I need to sign up for a lot more races this year.

                  No more Ask Miles, Road Scholar, Newbie Chronicles and that Stop/Go/Frivolous/Serious graph thing.  Don't get me wrong, I've always loved the all the deeper articles.  But why cut out the other stuff?  Where is the balance?  Do we need to pull Yasso out of retirement to remind them not to take themselves so darn seriously?

                   

                  Also MIA: Races & Places -- always a good way to discover interesting races around the count

                   

                  I've also notice that it is becoming the incredible shrinking magazine. For July it's maxing out at 80 pages. Not that long ago it was averaging .from 112-120. . .

                   

                  July did have some solid content - but an 8 page photo essay (Finished, pp 8-18) was missing the essay portion.

                    The editor in chief page acknowledges all of their changes and the reasoning behind them. They are putting all of the more "light hearted" things online and are reserving the magazine for when you want to sit down and read something long form. I like it.
