Default Marathon runners, what happens when you hit the wall?

So there is this guy I know who wants to make a documentary

about 'hitting the wall'

He says that when runners ‘hit the wall’ its not just physical exhaustion – it’s your brain running out of brain sugar too, which is, apparently an intensely personal experience...

Is it?

It always makes me wonder about the Greeks. Makes me wonder about my brain… makes me wonder what exactly happens when my brain ‘hits the wall’?
