Want your legs featured in the New York Times Magazine?

Hi everyone,

I just received a deeply hilarious request.  See below.  The Times Magazine needs some leg models for a running piece.  Could you please contact me if you fit the description below, and let me know how tall you are?

This would be a huge help to McDougall.



Thank you so much for all of your help with letting us cover the festival. We are now going to do another shoot this Saturday afternoon until sunset where we have a more controlled situation. 

We are looking to find about 5 great runners to help us out and let us photograph them for a few hours. We are still determining where in the city this will take place. We are looking for a mix of both men and women, with toned/muscular legs, that look like typical runners, and have very little visible leg hair. Ideally we'd like them to all be around the same height, or leg length. I know this is a fairly tall order to ask for on such short notice. I've attached the image we are basing our new shoot off of. We will be shooting from behind and below, and are looking for people with legs similar to the ones in this image. 
Would you be able to put word out to your community and see if anyone would be interested, and if they could send me their height, and an image of themselves, perhaps wearing running shorts, and their running footwear so we can see their legs? We would need to see what their legs look like.
We are hoping to get about 5 people to attend the shoot, and will probably shoot them in groups of 2's and 3's.
