Before a big event I usually have vivid dreams which are a blatant (though internal) display of the level of anxiety I am feeling. I've had a few doozies before birthing babies and running marathons. With St. George only 4 days (4 DAYS?! Ahhhh!) away, the dreams have officially started. Last night the marathon included mental and physical puzzles that had to be completed before moving on in the race. They were spaced out every few miles. I'm not all that great when it comes to mental math type puzzles as it is, and my mind becomes especially foggy after I've run a couple dozen miles. I remember shouting during the dream, "At this rate, I'm never going to finish under 4 hours!" There won't be any trivia or calculus before the finish line in St. George, will there?
After finding this, my anxiety dreams will most likely incorporate chickens running. I'll keep you posted.
