If you are simply running in your dream, it may be an indication that you need to slow down in your every day life. Running a foot race in your dreams show that you have an enemy who is a threat to your possessions and is envious of your acquisitions or achievements. If you win the race it means you will quickly overcome your adversary. Running in your dreams may also symbolize the energy levels, the strength, or the force that you have to get through life.
