    I'm a bit of a zombie fan, and I tend to like zombie shows and books. Well last night while watching The Walking Dead there was a commercial for an upcoming 5k/obstacle course in Austin called "Run For Your Life". You can participate as a runner or a ZOMBIE who tries to attack the runners! My whole family signed up today for zombie duty! For just $25 you get zombified with makeup, a shirt, a beverage and lots of silliness! They are holding these runs all over the US. Look them up if you're interested!

    That sounds like so much fun! I'm a member of the Zombie Squad and this seems like something we should be participating in. I just posted a link on the squad page! Thanks for the info!

    I would love to sign up, but I'd have to be a zombie from the beginning because I'd know I would get caught anyway...sooner or later

    (sooner probably than later)

    What fun! I've always said I don't understand people's fascination with running-the only time you'd catch me doing it if someone was chasing me. ;)

    Securis, they're happening all over the country, and more are forming rapidly! Keep checking the website, and I'll bet one happens in NY soon! :)

    Kinder, you sign up and I'll make sure my whole family chases you! LOL

    Awesome! There are a couple different zombie crawls around here for holidays and stuff that I always mean to go to but miss. This year I plan on making it though! I've seen advertisements for marathons, but I'm not much of a runner. I didn't know they had zombies chasing runners. That is hilarious!

    There's a really cool app on the iPod that I use when I run. It's called "Zombies, Run!" and it motivates you to run by turning it into a zombie apocalypse game. It's really a lot of fun!

    Ooooh, one is south CA. I just read up on what you get to do if you sign up as a zombie. You get some cool freebies, it's much cheaper, AND you get to have free race on event day. I would SOOOO sign up to be a zombie. I'll have to wait until we get closer to race day (will be in October) to see if I'll be able to sign up (nothing else major going on).
