Oh, to dream


I had a dream about halfway into my training. Several friends and I had signed up to run a half/full/ultra. I was registered to run the half with 3 friends, my mom was running the full and Tom and Nicole were running the ultra. As soon as the race started, my shoes kept coming untied. My 3 friends sprinted away from me, leaving me far behind to pace on my own, my mom was teasing me for only running the half. Trees kept falling in front of me and I was having to duck and jump over them. After two miles, I gave up. Tom and Nicole wouldn’t even speak to me at the end of the race.

I told Tom about the dream the next day and he said that was common and also would never happen.

I bought some yankz elastic shoelaces that don’t come untied. Just in case…
