Dream on a kitchen floor
I've been pouring over stats, splits, drop bags, mileages, terrain, elevation climb, food, pace, clothes, temperature, sunset times, moon cycle, schedule, and lists, many lists. So it's no wonder I had a recurring dream last night of falling asleep on a kitchen floor at an aid station at mile 62 (not sure why there's a kitchen there) Though conscious of the fact that I had to get up and keep going, I was in a drug-like state, lethargic and drowsy. "38 miles to go and 10 hours to finish under 24 hours. Get up!" I kept yelling at myself in the dream. Finally, my alarm saved me from this restless nightmare and I made a mental note to pack extra NoDoze in my mile 62 drop bag.
