Is it me or does everyone seem to be training for a race these days?

For the past 4 months, I’ve been training for the Silverstrand Half-Marathon taking place this weekend in San Diego. This is my first race ever. And it’s the weirdest thing that as I started training, it seemed like everyone I bumped into was training for a marathon run of some sort. I’ve discovered no less than four friends who are in-training just like me. I don’t know if marathon-running is becoming more popular now or if I just notice it more now that I’m doing it or if maybe our water supply has been contaminated with Gatorade without our knowledge, turning us into fitness addicts.
