Man when you forget your mission that bad! Runner’s World seems to have forgotten its readers. Ostensibly that’s what you are supposed to do with a magazine isn’t it, read it? I don’t understand the use of 6 pt and 8 pt type though. Even if I wasn’t as old as the hills I can’t imagine why you wouldn’t want to make your magazine reader friendly?
In the 2 examples I included in this post the pictures take up roughly 90% and 80% of the page. It would be child’s play to size those pictures a smidge smaller and institute 12 point type. Unfortunately I bought 5 years of this nonsense. (The type in the yellow highlight in the top picture is 12 point.)
