Women’s Running Catches Up With Supermodel Candice Huffine

A recent convert to the sport of running, she covers the November/December issue.

In the November/December issue of Women’s Running, which hits newsstands Nov. 8, there is—as per usual—a fun page of information about the cover shoot.


Among the details shared under the headline “Behind the Shoot” is the fact that three days after supermodel Candice Huffine worked with photographer James Farrell for the cover above, she and her husband ran in the Brooklyn Rock ‘n’ Roll Half-Marathon. What makes this especially notable is that the day of the event, Oct. 8, was also the couple’s wedding anniversary.

The cover story by Sarah Gearhart starts off with Huffine recalling her pivotal runner’s point. A trip to Ibiza and a meal with husband Matt Powers, who is a longtime runner. That’s how her following in his footsteps, and year-long training for last month’s Brooklyn run, took hold.

In the article, Huffine also talks about coming from the world of “plus-size models,” a term many hope will soon be obsolete:

“Curvy women should be in media. Curvy women can be on TV. We can wear amazing fashion. We belong. We are needed.”

The cover story ends with a cool sidebar look at Huffine’s four fellow Project Start ambassadors. The Project Start initiative, which she created in partnership with the magazine, is designed to encourage others to try the sport of running. Powers is involved as well, filming the ambassadors, who include blogger Kelly Roberts and freelance writer-editor Alison Feller.

The hashtag for Project Start is #PSyougotthis. Check out some of the tagged entries on Instagram.
