This morning I ran a 5K. It was my first run in a week, given my work schedule and the terribly cold weather we’ve been having. Afterwards, coming off a night shift, I went to bed for awhile.
I don’t always dream about running, but when I do, I’m usually faced with some sort of adversity.
So I dreamed I was running a half-marathon in Nashville, and doing really well. Unfortunately, I could not locate the Activities app on my Apple Watch. (This is what I used to track all my runs.) It was incredibly frustrating, but I kept running.
Then, about mile 9, I was attacked by tiny, itchy bugs to the the point that it became painful. It was dusk, which is an odd time to be running a half-marathon, but this is the time of day tiny, itchy bugs typically come out in summer.
It was then I woke up, and I woke up feeling all itchy. I’m sure there is a name for this phenomenon, but I’m not sure what it is.
