i went to photograph a competitor in this great Australian event yesterday. now firstly, 60 000 people up before 9am on a sunday, make that 60 001 including me.
secondly, all 60 000 (60 001 minus me ) fit, shiny happy people were about to endevour on a 15 km run, through the hilly eastern suburbs of sydney. and they were all so happy!!!!! and fit!!!!!!

people were stretching their refined limbs, rubbing down their smooth smooth aqualine legs, and there i was photographing it all. i gotta say, this was almost as good as having a camera out on north bondi on a summer weekend. minus the coconut oil.

i got some great shots, i got one of this crazy man strutting around in a garbage bag , and then another one of more crazy men and women strutting around in garbage bags ..and then i realised i was too far out of the athletic world to understand this new phenomena. next there'll be nike garbage bags.

anyway, sunday morning 9am, what a great time to be awake!

by eleven i was back in bed, asleep

I was out shopping amongst all these fit people. Makes me sick. I'm far too busy being sloth like, drinking, smoking and nursing hangovers to be out running from one end of the city to the other at 9 on a Sunday morning!! I dont understand what motivates a person to want to do that...I just dont get it.
