Long time, read-every-word readers will know instantly why I’m talking about this.
For the rest of you, here’s the cheat sheet:
1. Last year, I trained for and ran a half marathon and in six weeks and absolutely loved the entire process. Runner’s high for SURE.
2. This year, I’ve been feeling some serious anxiety, which is brand new to me, and I’m trying to make it stop.
3. Also this year, I have been running less than ever in my life before.
4. In October, I ran a half marathon. Even though the training was disastrous, I felt the most incredible emotional relief and clarity during that race.
SO: I wanted to do some digging into WHY we feel a runner’s high. Why some people seem to feel it more than others (a conclusion I made based on a few conversations with friends – so super scientific.) Why some people feel that high during other exercises and some people don’t (also based on my scientific process.)
