How to activate your brain's superpowers.

Yep, What you describe sounds a little like runner's high. For me it would come right after I reached the a certain mileage, not every single time, though. For one thing I didn't feel certain parts of my body nor think about them nor need to. If, while running, I'd been telling or re-telling myself a story, that stopped. Only I wasn't aware of that. Because there wasn't awareness at that time...kinda non-awareness. Music didn't change that. In fact I usually had music on which didn't matter.. I recall if I was doing laps the "high" would last only a half or three-quarters of a mile, usually not at the very last lap. Nowadays i'd say it happens much less frequently than it used to.
