I’ve been running one way or another ever since.

Now, The Wall Street Journal says I’m part of a growing trend and didn’t even know it.

Women are taking over the world and business of running.

So many women are participating in weekend events, organizers have cut way down on holding “Women Only” events because women are already the majority at most events anyway.

How’d did this happen?

Why didn’t the traditional media like Runner’s World see it coming?
