A minimum of 60 individuals will be recruited and enrolled to complete the entire protocol in a randomized, double-blinded, 18 week placebo-controlled trial. Subjects will receive either a placebo or glutathione while participating in a stepwise exercise approach that mixes periods of high and low training volume to train subjects and improve running efficiency. Upper Respiratory Tract Infection-related health conditions will be monitored and assessed throughout the study period.
