Training 4 the Zombie 5K Run!

Saturday, September 14, 2013

I saw a recently posted emoticon race coming up in mid-October benefiting Fuzzy Friends Rescue. I am now registered! emoticon

In fact there's a 1K dog walk too...Lol! emoticon
All contestants are asked to dress up in costumes including the dogs.....the race is called the emoticon "Zombie Run" emoticon.

I saw in the race description that the 5K trail will be booby trapped with costumed zombies/characters that try to "tag" you during the run. It sounds like pure FUN! emoticon We are given 3 "tags" ( like in flag football ) and if you cross the finish line emoticon with at least one tag attached to you, you are eligible for rewards. emoticon

This 5K will be my 2nd "timed" first was a trail run. Although I do enjoy running, we don't have it in our budget to finance lots of races for me ::...around here they can be pricey. I like to make sure that my son is able to run also.....we look for races that he can run with his friend.

I have invited my BIL & 2 friends to join me....I know they love to's to hoping they can. emoticon

OK! I'm going to ignore the DQ blizzard sitting in my fridge & the "football" snacks that are around, and form a strict nutritional plan for more little unhealthy snacks for me...even portioned ones. No excuses for me.

I choose ENERGY!
I choose healthy bites!
I choose to do it for me!

emoticon I CAN do this.....:::just needed to give myself a pep talk.

. . . . : : : Time to RUN! emoticon BBL to report on my FEED.

    Races are expensive here too, at least $40 for a 5K and closer to the date it gets more expensive.

The zombies and flags sounds fun! Motivating! That's great that your son does races too!

    Sounds like fun. There was a Zombie run not far from here about a month ago. Unfortunately we had other commitments. It sounded very similar to the one you are doing. Good Luck and watch out for Zombies!
