Run For Your Life!

  • draw attention from something: to take somebody’s mind off something and draw attention to something else

Today I was planning on doing an unveiling however due to some yellow jacket wasps (oh yes there is a huge side story here) we need to delay the unveiling for one day.  So while we wrap up some loose ends and ice some wasp stings, let me take this moment to divert your attention and tell you all about a little race I’m definitely going to do next year.

I have watched this video about 100 times and I am beyond stoked to do this. Have I ever run in a race/marathon/etc? Nope. So what the heck am I thinking right?

There are so many reasons I love the concept behind this 5k. First I am a HUGE fan of The Walking Dead.

The Walking Dead - I can't wait until Oct. 13th

This 5k isn’t a timed race but more a way to test your endurance as you run, climb, crawl, duck, dodge, and dive to get through this course without getting “infected”.  

Zombies Ahead!!!

If this doesn’t motivate me to get off my butt and train, I’m not sure what will. LOL. 

For all of you who are thinking of training for the Zombie Run in 2014, there is basically one rule when trying to out run zombies.

Run like you're training for the Zombie Apocalypse.

Oh and of course, you can’t forget to put some effort into your wardrobe after all, it is the apocalypse.  These socks would be perfect for such a run.

Maybe these socks are too much for regular crossfit training ;) but maybe the zombie run! :D

Here are some questions for all of you:

  • Are you a fan of The Walking Dead?
  • Would a run like this motivate you to work out? If not, what does?
  • How would you train if you were in this run?
  • What would you wear? Would you run in traditional running gear or have fun with it?
