When you run so much you get a good feeling out of it.

so is it just slang for a sense of accomplishment? or is it an actual chemical reaction in your body?

i dunno what is it, but your body feels great after you run for a while and are in shape, then you kil yourself running longer than you'ver ever ran before.

Its when after you have exerted so much energy, you suddenly feel like nothing has happened and you can do whatever you were doing for so much longer. Its kind of like a second life after running alot and then you suddenly feel no pain.

Basically what imprez said. After a few miles, you stop feeling any sort of pain, and you can (or at least feel like you can) run forever. I did a 10 mile run a month ago and after the first 3-4 miles you really don't feel anything. It's great.

i have a question, is it normal or acceptable to not be able to run as far if its too cold...like i just went around my neighborhood (2 miles) and i can usually do it without really changing pace...but this time it was waaaay cold outside and i had to stop and take a breather, which is like completely unlike me. My whole body was just hurting more than it should've been. Is this normal if its too cold? is it possible to get used to it?

Well of course it's related to endorphins/adrenaline etc., but that takes all the magic out of it.

It's very hard to achieve, especially after you've been running for a while. You will know it when you get it though. I used to think I would get it, but then I unmistakebly found it after a few great races. It's not like a normal high from drugs, you feel it for a good number of hours, and you still are perfectly coherant and everything. Basically, you feel invincible and have an orgasm over your whole body.

wow, all these people backing up its validity is makeing me want to go try.

The general consensus is that it usually happens after a few miles?

haha whenever im at the gym, i always get that when we run at the end of our workout.

i never notice it, but my friend always tells me right after we're done running i ALWAYS just ramble on about how happy and great i feel or how nice it is outside

it briefly reminds me of using whippets, not really high like in smoking weed. thats more of a 'tired' high
