Are you training for or completed a 10K recently? You are not alone. According to Health Day News, more women than ever are training for 10Ks. "Ten-kilometer races have become increasingly popular in the United States over the past decade and today's runners don't fit the old stereotypes, a new analysis finds.

Do you have a 10K picked out yet?
