I’m always a sucker for a good silhouette, and this is a great one of Rep. Jon Runyan catching his breath Tuesday during football practice. The former professional football player will play for the Congressional team against the Capitol Police in a charity game Oct. 12 at RFK Stadium. The lawmakers’ practice happened to be held on the first nice autumn day after weeks of rain, and the 7 a.m. start time yielded beautiful light on Runyan’s less-than-serene profile.
