Interesting article. I was thinking today about how much popularity running has gained lately and how many people participate in marathons nowadays. I didn't think about this though, it's too bad that great runners are less these days. But at least more people are getting out of their couches and running.

I don't know if people are more conformist or less competitive, maybe they just don't care. Running still pwns :augenroller:

I think people just don't want to commit to the level of (hard) training that was done 20-30 years and is necessary to get top times. Maybe just don't want to graft in training as much as they used to. I think people at least have as much time, if not more these days, it's just an issue of effort and application.
