Runner's high

During my long run on Saturday, I was thinking about the concept of the "runner's high." Seems like it's kind of a different thing for different people - some people feel like they can run forever, some people get a light, floaty feeling - but I wanted to describe how it felt for me. The main thing I feel is that it would be weird to stop running. That I'm doing what it is that my body is meant to be doing, and that stopping would be almost wrong. Kind of a cool feeling...

That's what you're made to do- that's a great way to put it! I've only gotten a runner's high once or twice, and it feels to me like I could run forever, as if I was only walking, but joyously! And then I didn't even feel tired when I stopped. Thanks for sharing. :)
