I don't know whether I am just noticing it more because of fb or if people are running and racing more than ever. Suddenly it seems like everyone I know is signing up for color runs or mud races. Even people who I think are overweight and out of shape are running races. There is a sign up sheet at work for people's next 5k. I am just wondering when this suddenly become so popular. I have always thought I hated running but now I am thinking I need to rethink it.

I wondered that too. I see many more advertisements for races and I have to wonder if I am just noticing them more or if there are more.
