Three Things Thursday: Running Nightmares

1. I had a dream last night that I was late for the run this weekend, and then when I got there my hair band broke and my hair was flying wild. There was no way I was going to do the run with my hair flying wild.  Then I was in a locker room searching for something to pull my hair out of my face when I heard the gun go off and I thought to myself "that's okay it was just the elite wave".  The run this weekend does not have an elite wave by the way.  Once I finally got started on the run I got lost!  I could see the runners, but I couldn't figure out how to get there and I was suddenly in the middle of the bike race part of the run.  The run this weekend does not have a bike race part. Happily I woke up before it could get any worse.

I told my husband about my dream this morning and he agree it was not a dream it was a nightmare!

What better to clear out the nightmare with some kittens!

2. Today, like as soon as I post this, I am going for a run.  If my foot stays pain free I will be running a 5 mile race this weekend.  Not racing it, like I would love to do, but running it.  Forecast looks like it could rain, will be cloudy and windy with a high of 55, so it will probably be in the high 30s low 40s for the race so not ideal for racing it anyway, but great for running temp wise :)  

3. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you might already know that I am feeling optimistic about things and went ahead and registered for a half marathon in July.  Yes July.  Sounds a little crazy, but happily they start at 6 am so that means I should be done (hopefully) before 8 before the heat of the day really starts to set it.  I did my first and only marathon in Missoula and loved it (except for the puking cramping part) The route is beautiful, it is well organized and the horseshoe medal is my favorite.

One of my friends is going to do it too, so it will be a girl's weekend :)

The winner of the Mamma Chia giveaway is posted as well

Okay, well wish me luck on my run, sun is shining and it is a beautiful day.
Do you have nightmares like that when you have a run coming up?  I do!
Have you done a half in July?  My first half was in July but it started at 8.  I nearly got heat stroke.  Way too hot!


  1. Have you ever tried Endurolytes? They are my savior when it comes to running in heat! Good luck on your run.

  2. Awe, that a terrible dream. Its probably just the wish to be back to racing. Luckily it was just that... a dream. :-) Have fun in your run! It is rainy here today but temperature is good for running so I'll be doing that after work.

  3. A half in July? Melt-City!!!!
    Have a great run tonight!!!

  4. I have had a dream that I was late for a race, and in my last race I was a minute or two late because I was in the portaloo!
    Because you have just registered for a race (yay!) I think your mind is retrieving all your race thoughts that were filed away for so long! Remember the chapstick too!
    Have a fab run!

  5. Goood luck! I saw you registered-- that's exciting!

  6. Good luck on your run! I hope it's pain-free!

  7. Being late for a race is definitely my number 1 nightmare. Has never happened yet, knock on wood.

    Getting lost during a race would come second.


Because I love hearing from you all!
