"Z" is for Zombie!

The zombie apocalypse is upon us!  

RUN! 




Okay, not really, but it's fun to pretend.

At the end of October, right before Halloween, there will be the best 5K race in the history of running.  Okay, probably not really that either, but I've never been so excited about anything exercise related before.

The premise is that we're all evacuees, and we need to navigate our way through a zombie-infested forest.  It's a 5K race with twenty obstacles--man-made and naturally occurring--to slow us down.  We'll get health flags, and the zombies, which can crawl, walk, run, etc., will take them from us.  The objective is to get through to the finish line "alive" (with, I'd guess, at least one health flag).  There are even different routes to take to get to the end!

It'll be my first 5K ever, and that in itself will be a big accomplishment because I'm not much of a runner.  And though I know that this race will undoubtedly take longer than a normal 5K because of the obstacles and zombies, I'll be thrilled to get to the finish line.

Thank you to my new followers and to everyone who read and commented on my blog!  The A-Z Challenge was fun, and I'm looking forward to giving it a shot again next year.

  2. Zombies scare me so even though I know that's just pretend, I still couldn't do it. Just thinking about it is making me want to hide under my desk. Good luck with it...

  5. That's kind of hilarious. Are you allowed to protect yourself from the zombies in any way?

    1. I think we can run, but no fake weapons. They won't actually hurt us, but it'll still be thrilling!
