I recently read a few articles about the health benefits from exercise. Also mentioned in some were references to a phenomenon known as “runner’s high.” It is suggested that during periods of long, continuous workouts, the body releases ß-endorphins that not only produce euphoric feelings, but also act as an analgesic that can mitigate or mask pain.

This gives me cause to wonder if Gov. Gary Herbert might consider opposing jogging until “more and better research” is done.
