No seriously, run. And jump. And climb. And crawl. Then run some more. You get the idea.
Run for Your Lives is a 5k Obstacle Course.... that also happens to be infested with zombies. Seriously. I'm going to snag a couple paragraphs from their website to explain it.
"Protect your brain and run for your life. This is one race where your legs giving out are the least of your problems. Run For Your Lives is a first-of-its-kind event, one part 5K, one part obstacle course, one part escaping the clutches of zombies — and all parts awesome.
Runners will navigate a series of 12 obstacles throughout a 5K course in an attempt to reach the finish line — all while avoiding zombies. At the end of this adventure race, you get to celebrate survival (or zombie transformation) with live entertainment and music, local celebrities, vendors, food, and of course, beer!"
They luckily have a Texas date but it's in Austin. No biggie, that's only a few hours drive from Dallas and it's not until December 15, 2012. Unless they add a Dallas date (they're announced they have more dates to be added later) I'll be in Austin because I cannot resist this. How could I pass up something like that? I just hope I'll be able to find someone who wants to participate with me because I'd be annoyed if I had to go off and have this much fun by myself. Though I'm not missing it so y'all better believe I would.
Check out the website for more information, take a look at the gallery, see if your city or one near you is going to be invaded, etc. Their website has lots of information on there. :) And if you're someone I actually know in real life (because a lot of those types read my blog when I manage to post now, lol) want to do this with me next year, let me know. :D
