Dear UltraRunning Magazine,

I am happy to report my subscription to UR does not require renewal as this wonderful sport has spawned yet another "ultra couple".

In a terribly efficient move, Charles Raffensperger and I will be cutting our subscription needs by 50%, as we find only one subscription of UR per household is truly necessary. We are deliriously happy to be evading the ever-present risk of paper cuts in the process, not to mention saving a few trees!

See you OUT THERE,

Psyche Wimberly


  1. That's awesome Psyche! Wonder if they will respond to you :)

  2. Congrats!

    And down with paper cuts!

  3. so does this mean it is official...or are we still in the paperwork phase?

  4. I hop you and Chuckie can run REAL FAST cuz you are breaking up his marriage and GOD WILL COME LOOKING FOR YOU FOR THAT !!!!!!!! RUN, RUN RUN, HIDE HIDE HIDE PSYCHE !!! (THE MORAL MONSTER)

  5. I can only speak for myself, but now that I know the MORAL MONSTER is after me, I will most assuredly step up my training :)

  6. Take it from me Moral Monster, nobody is breaking up this marriage, it was already broken beyond repair and it is MY choice to leave after enduring years of negativity, bitching, complaining, and unfounded criticisms...if you feel compelled to enforce your narrow minded view of morality on someone please choose someone equally as small minded as yourself. And btw, Psyche can run pretty fast :)
