Recently, I described in this blog a continuum of dreams that I occasionally have had over the last few years associated with my ex-wife. As I said of those dreams, there are parts where the dream has generated very strong and reliable memories of the dream sequence and other parts where it's not so clear. What is common to all of these dreams is the the location where this occurs, with whom it occurs, and the "set-up" associated with me running a race (a full marathon).
The last three nights I have had a repeating dream. Same location, "same route" (that has some very weird routing for a race), and the same distance (a half-marathon, 21.1 km or 13.1 miles). It seems the race takes place in or near Fayetteville, NC (don't know why). There are both residential and streets through commercial retail areas in this dream. There is some of the race through buildings(?) and narrow hallways (dreams can be so weird).
I don't know why I've had this dream three nights in a row. Maybe because I was supposed to run a 14-mile race last week, maybe because some of my friends are going out and running the course of the race individually. Whatever it is, I don't recall having the same dream three nights in a row and I don't know why I am having this one.
Maybe I'll figure it out somewhere down the road.
