At yesterday's Boston Marathon, this runner finished at the top of her division with a personal best time, even after she experienced a messy gastrointestinal revolt before she crossed the finish line. Unfortunately photographer John Kropewnicki was there when Stinky the Splat Monster paid this poor competitor a surprise visit.

But look — balloons!

Kropewnicki told us in an email that the putrid smell was overpowering even though he was presumably at a safe distance off to the side. We can only imagine what olfactory horrors were endured by the poor guy on the bike behind her.
