Race Dreams

TOTR 2 small 300

Here we are- Tuesday again.  Which means it’s time for another Tuesdays on the Run linkup!

Today we are talking about race dreams.  You know the week before or the night before when you start to lose sleep?  Or when you DO sleep, it’s fitful and restless because of crazy dreams?

Yep.  THAT.  Tell us about your crazy pre-race dreams.

If you don’t have any dreams you want to share, any running related blog post is welcome.

Link up with Erika, Marcia and me for this week’s Tuesdays on the Run!


Race Dreams Are Weird

I don’t know about you, but trying to get a good night’s rest before a race is high on my priority list.  Unfortunately, my brain doesn’t always cooperate with that plan.

Last week was a tough one for me.  With a first marathon looming, my sleep was not enough.

FitBit agreed.


I try to get those lovely blue lines but this month was full of grey.

When I did get some sleep, it was typically filled with weird dreams.

One dream had me WINNING the marathon.  The reason I won was because NO ONE ELSE SHOWED UP.  Everyone was staying home in protest to the costume policy change at Walt Disney World.

Apparently I didn’t get that memo.


I woke up laughing about that one.

I had another dream closer to the race that was just disturbing.  I woke straight up from a deep sleep and immediately tried to erase the vision from my head.  It was one of “those” moments.  (Shudder)

Race dreams are weird!  I’m happy that the big one is over for me and I can go back to my normal sleep cycle.

Do you have trouble settling your mind during race season?  How do you cope with sleep before a race?
