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.
