    It is true of runners getting highs by releasing natural hormones that can invigorate and suppress pain.

    Its also true that running, especially at the level frazz does it, can have side effects. There are medium and low impact sports available to do obsessively.

    I googled “runner’s toenails” nasty looking stuff.

    The “high impact” thing is just a myth. The human body evolve for running. It’s why we’re shaped differently from any other primate.

    I think evolution has taken a different turn in most western countries. We certainly are shaped differently.

    Pear shaped. Though not all people are built alike.

    Hey, black toenails (and other assorted weird toenails) are badges of honor for hardcore distance runners.

    Swimming is a great exercise. It has less of a harmful impact on the body. It’s less stressful on the body.

    In any case it’s best to stay away from chemicals like speed to get high. Before they know it, speed users become speed freaks. They become addicted to it and need it to function from day to day. People on diet pills become crazed and paranoid and end up ruining their relationships.

    Runner’s toenails can be avoided with the proper fitting shoes.

    I’ll take your word for it.

    Yep. I’ve done 26 marathons and never lost a toenail. It also helps to apply vaseline or other lubricant to the toes before long runs. However… when I did my longest race ever (50 miles) I did lose half a toenail. Not too bad. My feet usually look quite nice when I’m doing my usual mileage.

    More people would run if the runner’s high kicked in after a quarter mile, rather than waiting for you to get past 4-5 miles. (That’s why I’ve only ever “enjoyed” that high once in my life.)
