While running the race this weekend, and while limping to my car afterwards, and still again for the next couple days noticing how sore I was, I contemplated the notion of "Runner's High".  You have heard of this, yes?  Did I experience this?  Uh, no.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am here to tell you that Runner's High is not a real thing.  Well, I mean I guess it's as real as "Hit Your Thumb With A Hammer's High" or "Bang Your Head Against Wall's High".  I guarantee if you bang your head against a wall for 30 minutes and then stop, OH MAN are you ever gonna start to feel good.   Oooh, baby, sooooo high!

I suspect that people who believe in Runner's High have never actually been high.  For those who disagree, I've got an 1/8th ounce of oregano to sell you.  It's a pretty sweet high.

the runners' high is supposed to be when the marijuana stored in your body comes back up to the surface. you obviously don't have enough stored up. get on it.

I'm pretty sure that's not the issue. I've been a runner off and on since I was a teenager, so let's just assume that I've covered the bases on having various different levels of different substances in my body.
