My favorite photo from the weekend

Originally uploaded by Fat Cyclist.

I’ll start working on my race report during the flight home today, but meanwhile, please enjoy this photograph of an unusually attractive bag lady I photographed in the early hours before the race yesterday.

She looks happy, sleeping there with a cardboard pillow. And remarkably fit. As if she might wake at any moment, shed those twenty layers of clothes and start running.

And running and running.

    Wow, the homeless Runner is so perpetually happy she even smiles in her sleep.

    Fatty, I hope you took pity on this poor unfortunate soul and took her in and fed her and offered her a place to sleep which was much more accomodating than the hard ground, although I have a feeling she might have made you chase her to do it! :-)

    I am content, having now witnessed the most expensive photograph ever taken.

    I do hope you posted that with permission, or you will be sleeping on the cold ground with cardboard for a pillow for quite some time.

    That bag lady has remarkably attractive teeth for someone who seems to live (and sleep) on the streets.

    It must have been a hard day’s night ;-)
