West Lake is in the center of the resort city of Hangzhou located west of Shanghai. The lake is surrounded by parkland and each morning it teems with Chinese citizens partaking of their favorite exercise. This woman was photographed as she limbered prior to her run. I groaned as I took the photo, contemplating what would be required for me to assume this position.
