This photograph of Jenny Barringer Simpson winning the women’s 1500m world championship in Daegu, South Korea, is my new, all-time favorite. I’m going to cut it out and put it next to the treadmill. Maybe it will help me get through another long winter in the basement.
Lisa suspects that my previous favorite was a photo of Paula Radcliffe (like this one maybe) or steeplechase—I do love the steeplechase. Although, it’s still tough to beat the picture in Sports Illustrated from the late 80s of the guy on crutches running the NYC marathon while a bunch of young sisters stare at his awesomeness. I couldn’t find it online. Sorry.
