In brief: Burst of energy
Oftentimes when running you reach a point where you are tired and can at best keep up your current pace.
A second win is when you reach down and have a sort of "energy reserve" or second wind that enables one to keep going...

In brief: Runner's high
You can be running either a long distance or track and field, be on the verge of wanting to quit, then a surge comes over the body- a burst of adrenalin, sometimes explainable.
The feeling is awesome and sometimes will surprise when you have completed your workout.
