I remember the photo but I couldn't tell you who it was. I have no memory of a face. Just legs.
Hmmm..was it Martina Navratilova in Vanity Fair?
Don't think so; I didn't read VF till the late 80s, if I remember correctly. This woman had long flowing blonde hair, though I don't think that her sport was running. I'll look up the MN image, though, to confirm!
Complete guess - Gabrielle Reese (Reece?) who played Olympic beach volleyball..the hair and legs would be right. I think she was also a model.Christine (another Canadian)
Mr C suggested Gabby too, but this photo was waaay before her day. It's driving me crazy. I think the athlete was petite (just over 5 feet, maybe) and she had the most extraordinarily strong and gorgeous thighs. Sigh . . .
I spend a fair amount of time in used book stores. I believe I've seen the image you describe on the cover of a vintage women's fitness book, maybe from the 1980s? The title could have been, "Thunder Thighs." I can find neither the book nor the image online, though.
