This is why

I've been a runner since I was a wee one. It helps that I have a mother who has run quite a few marathons. In fact, she would pick me up in jr. high and drive down to Rice University where I would run around and play on various Decathlon type things while she was training. I ran my first 1/2 marathon around age 15, and my first full marathon around age 25. I've run in nearly every place I've ever touched my feet to ground in the World, at all times or day or night. This video by Jim Jarvis sums it all up perfectly what it's like (sans drug trip big yellow head sunrise), you can skip to the 1:00 mark to get into the groove:
