a runner's high, that is <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br><a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/27/health/nutrition/27best.html?_r=1&adxnnl=1&oref=slogin&adxnnlx=1206616005-fheyF2yw0/AkLRlx4ZuS4w" target="_blank">http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/27/he...0/AkLRlx4ZuS4w</a>

2 summers ago I ran 4 huge weeks<br>
151<br>
151<br>
133<br>
153<br><br>
during that time - In my afternoon recovery runs I was often light on glycogen / hydration - But the highs were so intense in these runs ... I was almost laughing as I ran.<br><br>
But most of the time it is more of a calming effect as my body gets into breathing / running rythm and I relax and I am at peace with the world, no high - just calmness for a few moments in this crazy world.

I think my days of runner's highs are long gone <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> I just can't run with the intensity I did 15 or 20 years ago.

Hm. Somewhat, I attribute it to the fact that I'm not running any longer <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Still, I like when the run goes well, so I do occasionally feel "better" after that. Perhaps it's because I'm generally an optimistic person, or basically happy so that I don't notice a big difference?

nope - in fact after my long run I can be a little tired and grumpy (something about getting up at 5:30 AM and running 20+) - a runner's low perhaps?
