Marathon Dream Meaning

Dreaming about marathon

Participating in or watching a marathon run in a dream means that something that you thought would be completed quickly will drag on for a long time, the 21st Century dreambook thinks.

According to the Psychological dreambook, a dream in which you were a participant in a marathon foreshadows pleasure, a feast in a cheerful company, pleasant communication with interesting people. For lovers, such a dream promises a romantic evening.

If you dreamed that you won a marathon, this is a sign that in reality you were too relaxed and gave free rein to your feelings. As a result, you became too vulnerable to ill-wishers. Try to control your emotions for a while and not express your opinions out loud about people you know.

If you simply dreamed of a marathon, but did not participate in it, you should know that you have attracted the attention of some influential person. Perhaps he will provide you with help and support in your work.

In D. Loff’s dream book it is written: “Marathon running symbolizes the struggle between your nature and something that lies beyond the capabilities of the human body, at the archetype level.

Often in our dreams we see ourselves competing, and this indicates our competence. In other cases, we lack competitive qualities and are accompanied by a sense of awareness of the limits of our capabilities that exist in real life. This is true in cases where your colleagues and partners are running with you, but are ahead of you.”

If in a dream you run for a long time and non-stop, as if participating in some kind of marathon, this means in waking life you will be sluggish and slow in defending your own rights, as a result of which you will lose the favor of influential people.

Seeing in a dream a large number of people taking part in a marathon race foretells that you will waste a lot of time on pointless chatter and empty arguments in which people will drag you into.

Participating in a marathon in a dream and running to the finish from the last forces means you have enough strength for any sports competition in reality.

Running a marathon in a dream and being the first to arrive means a loss of strength.
