    I thought of this one while in the shower after a 13 miler this morning. Base your answer on your own personal experience.

    You don't remember the run, you were in a zone, someplace far away.

    Here's another one that applied to today's run for me.

    . . . you start the run feeling a little "UGH" and finish it feeling, "AHHHH!"
