AM:Two mile walk around Sandy. Just for my mental health. It's supposed to be 65 degrees here today which will break the old record high by 9 degrees!!!!

I received an email from marathonphoto saying "Dear Mr. Murphy, we noticed that you have not purchased any of your recent event photos". Then they wanted feedback about how they could "serve me better".

I told them they could start taking pictures of me that made me look younger and faster.

PM: 5 miles on the treadmill plus some lifting.

I'm also really humble and just not that into glorifying my achievements. Really, really, humble.

If MarathonFoto catered to serious racers, they would have sent you an email addressed "DeEr Mr. Murphy" in honor of the classic, but no longer accessible, letsrun thread.

How will you ever replace that canyon profile photo, then?

If they charged $1 or $2, I bet they would make more money than the crazy prices they charge now.

Amen Jon!
