The State of the Sport of Running

Have you seen this article?  It is a review of the State of Running in 2012 done by Running USA.  My favorite part of the article so far is this quote:

Early in women’s running, there was no such category as women’s running apparel. In fact, it wasn’t until the late 1970s that the running bra was invented, based on the prototype of two male jockstraps being sewn together. The idea was to provide women with more support and less chafing during their runs (this product was initially called the “jockbra”, and later, earned the official name Jogbra).
I'm finding it interesting and informative.  Check it out.  Apparently, women outran men in 2011!
