The Runner's High.
Sachs, Michael L.
Research concerning the euphoric state known as "the runner's high" is reviewed in an attempt to determine psychological factors behind the experience. Possible factors include cerebral dominance, relaxation, environmental influences, time and/or distance of run, and absence of personal problems. A list of references and several descriptions of "the runner's high" by those who have experienced it are appended. (CJ)
