REM Running

I actually have the ability to run while I sleep. Plus, in a unique form of multitasking – I continue to dream of other things. It’s like being on automatic pilot.
I could be running a race - going at a nice easy pace, and then for a split second my mind wanders. Other bits and bites of life pour out – however - I continue to run. Always heading for the finish line – but of course never getting there...

Do you run in your dreams?

Wikipedia on Dreams
“People dream during REM sleep, perhaps as a result of excited brain activity and the paralysis of major voluntary muscles.”
“REM sleep in adult humans typically occupies only 20-25% of total sleep.”
