Running With Cake

I had a dream that I was in a marathon, and I was far enough ahead that I stopped to buy a cake. Once I had the cake, I realized that it may have taken too long. I didn’t have time to eat it so I ran with it. People started passing me while I was running with cake. Finally I realized if I was to have a chance, I had to abandon the cake, so I left it by the side of the road and continued running. I came in second, because of cake.
