There's even talk of crazy half-marathons in Donegal and the BUPA run in the Phoenix Park. I have no idea how we've all become so health-conscious of late - we've even cut out the Pickled Onion Monster Munch crisps at lunchtime.
However, just to warn all my co-Belfast Marathon relay runners, there may be a need to call someone off the sub's bench if my knees keep creaking and popping the way they are at present.
* This isn't us - but we'll look just as silly in a few months' time.
* I've got two of these. Neither one is working properly. Any suggestions?
