[ASK] Fraction Addition with Arithmetic Series as Denominators

Does anyone know how to add these fractions?
$\displaystyle \frac11+\frac1{1+2}+\frac1{1+2+3}+…+\frac1{1+2+3 +…+2009}$
Like my previous question, I believe this one also has something which can be canceled out, and the denominators contain arithmetic series. Can this series be used to make some sorts of shortcuts?
