So yesterday morning I got up and went to the Zombie Run. It was a little tough to motivate myself to go, because it was kind of rainy, but I did get my butt out the door in the end! Here's me before the run:
The three balloons at my waist represent my "lifelines." If all three get popped along the way, I don't survive.
So off we went:
The run was SO much fun... A lot of sprinting to get around and away from the "zombies" and walking until you come to the next group. I ended up completing the run in 38 minutes, but it wasn't quite a 5K as advertised (about 0.20 miles short of that). So my pace wasn't better than previous runs, but it wasn't bad. I got pretty into the whole thing and really did everything I could to get away from the zombies (without hurting anyone of course). Here's me at the finish line:
One balloon left! I survived!!!
I didn't stay too long after the race (we had brunch plans), but here are a few shots of me with the zombies and the guys from the Umbrella Corp after the race:
After the race, we had brunch with a friend and then decided to check out "Buffalo Bill Days" in Golden. The car show was going on when we got there, which was exactly what my sweetie was hoping to see. He's off to the side of this pic of a beautiful '34 Ford:
We walked around the car show and stopped by the shop of some friends of ours, who sell hot rod memorabilia and other cool car stuff. Then we went home to rest for a bit, before going out to the "Gothnic" - a picnic at the park for those in the Goth community and their families. We have several friends in this scene and it sounded like a lot of fun.
So we stopped to get some subs and headed out to the park. We had a BLAST there. The sun finally came out, and the temperature was perfect! Lots of really awesome people, including several of our friends, were there. There was volleyball and frisbee and hula hooping and badmitton and sword fighting and all kinds of awesome fun stuff. It was so great to see our friends and make some new friends. Here's a shot of me and a friend of mine hooping:
I totally loved the hooping. I may look into getting myself one!
So overall, it was a busy and active day, but we really had a wonderful time. I feel so incredibly lucky to have such a wonderful partner to share all of these things with and who enjoys being active with me! And we have some of the most awesome friends ever!
Hope others had a great weekend!
