LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Experts say running 100 miles in under 30 or even under 24 hours, without sleep or much rest, isn’t as difficult as it sounds when one understands the science.

Angela Hodge, who holds a mathematics chair at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, will explain that science on March 9 during one of the SciPop Talks! events.

The title of her presentation: “The Science (and Art) of Running 100 Miles.” It’s scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in the Adele Hall Learning Commons in Love Library North, 13th and R streets, in Lincoln. The talk and popcorn are free.

The SciPop Talks! series combines science and popular culture and builds on the science cafe model. Speakers give interactive 30-minute talks and then take questions.
