Italics make everything more credible, don’t they?

There is a link between athletic performance and emotions (duh). Not just the euphoria of winning, the frustration of loss, or the silly of running 26 miles. I was thinking more along the lines of what chemicals affect pain perception and limits. This, in retrospect rather obvious, revelation came to me when I was simultaneously laughing, PO-ed at being late, and running like the Devil himself was chasing me (although I think in a fair race, he would lap me twenty times). But anyway. I felt none of the usual sharp and dull pain that I associate with running until after stopping. Then it hit me like a wall of squishy, ground bone and meat filled bricks.
