Living full time at a training center for runners, one would imagine our topic of conversation is 90 percent running related. Lately nothing could be further from the truth. With politics and finance majors from Princeton as well as well as MBAs, exercise science, and psychology majors, we discuss and debate global politics and classic literature as much as we do performances on the roads and tracks.

Last month’s column addressed the issue of training for ultras. This month will examine specific training for an event in the 50-mile/100K range.
