Authors: Tooker, Bill 
Book Description:
The marathon can be a torturous physical, mental and emotional journey. At any pace, covering 26.2 miles hurts. Many who attempt to run the marathon once, whether or not they’re able to finish, never do it again. The pain and effort are just too much. Others who find the marathon a challenge worth repeating do so only once or twice a year. Training is arduous and time-consuming, and total recovery from the trauma of the race can take weeks, even months in some cases. And then there are the 50 & DCers.
To members of “the 50 circuit”, marathons become a way of life, even an obsession. To some, just completing the circuit once isn’t enough. Some work on finishing a marathon in numerous countries and on every continent. Running 20, 30 or more marathons a year is routine for some members. As a change of pace, ultra-marathons of up to 100 miles are worked into race schedules. In this book, Bill Tooker attempts to delve into the reasons why do so many of the 50 and DCers thrive on these grueling and difficult events.
