dreams

I was going to write about some of the runs i have done lately, or the fact that we are now at 24 days from the wedding, or perhaps share some stories about my bachlorette ski trip last weekend. Instead I let you all into the weird world of my dream land.
Well i woke up this morning in a cold sweat - well apparently my dream i was having was very upsetting to me. In my dream i was running a marathon - and things were going well - except for the fact that we had to keep stopping at detours and stopping to complete different tasks. Well at a certain point in the race a man came out and was handing out yellow pieces of paper that said a number on it. He was shouting out that we were on pace to finish in four hours sixteen minutes and two seconds (why two seconds i'm not sure) well steve got one and I grabbed the last paper - because anyone who didn't grab a paper wasn't allowed to finish the race. Well it turns out that steve's good friend jeff who hates running - and will never run a marathon - was up ahead of us and he came back to check on us and didn't get a yellow paper. Well in my dream i started sobbing b/c it was my dream to finish a race in 4 hours 16 minutes and 2 seconds - and although i knew jeff should have my yellow paper instead of me - i knew he hadn't even trained for the race. So we decided to say screw the system and we all kept running. Well at this point the race turned into a version of tackle the tower and I was leading all of the people at the back of the pack up these stairs and ladders only to find when we go to the top that it was a dead end. So we all had to climb back down and go into this big room where we discovered that to make it to the next part of the race we had to do some sort of science experiment. Well other groups were finishing up their task - and steve and jeff would not tell me what we were suppose to do -- all i knew was that it involved sottering something - but that was it - well in the meantime steve was telling stories about his old cell phone at his job ten years ago - and not working the task. So i started sobbing again b/c now there was no way we were going to finish in 4 hours 16 minutes and 2 seconds. Then i woke up drenched in sweat. Not sure what that means -- maybe that i should see a doctor! ok - that's the end of your secret special glimpse into my scary world!

It's those 2 seconds that get you! What a tough race :)

Great dream! I like the part about science experiments.
