Many friends had asked me, What makes running a exciting and addicting sports for me.
As all we know, running is painful, tedious, and exhausting exercise. plus, you need to skip friday night gimmiks to have enough sleep for weekend race events. I think the hardest part is, you have to wake up early in the morning just to run.
So, why do so many people addicted it?
People run for obvious reasons like to increase performance, to release stress,to stay in shape,
and to reach an ideal body weight. But for others, there is a certain feeling that they are addicted to.
Most of runner says that euphoria or so-called "runner's high that comes after a run is what motivates them most, They have experienced a happy feeling during and after the race called endorphin rush .
Endorphins are natural hormones that your brain releases when it senses happiness. These endorphins give you a sense of happiness, satisfaction and well-being. It is released during long, continuous workouts, when the level of intensity is between moderate and high, and breathing is difficult. This also corresponds with the time that muscles use up their stored glycogen.
During a release of endorphins the person may be exposed to bodily harm from strenuous bodily functions after going past his or her body's physical limit. This means that runners can keep running despite pain, continuously surpassing what they once considered to be their limit. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endorphin#Runner.27s_high
