I was a competitive runner for many years. Track, Cross Country, Road Races... I would have dreams about being stuck to the track while fat people in cuttoffs were slowly jogging away from me, or being on a course and and leading then getting lost. I've been surfing for 2 years now and my surf dreams are similar. People tearing it up (usually in some extremely surreal setting, i.e. waves between mountains, city scapes with barrels rolling down the streets) and me not being able to get to the take off point.
