I have heard a lot of people who are use to 5ks said this was really tough. I think its because they train on tredmills and flat ground while this is an trail run. We have been training on the hills of West Virginia so I am hoping that will help! Just be sure to do a lot of upper body training too if you sign up :)

A friend of mine did this run last year in Indy, and a few of us are considering doing the one in Illinois this September. Looks like fun, though I am totally intimidated by the obstacles!

A coworker of mine is signed up to run with a team in TheZombieRun (a 5k in Louisville, KY) this April. I was tempted to sign up myself and my husband, but neither of us are ready for that yet. We could walk it, sure, but we want to RUN! So we're planning to find us a 5K for later this year and then try that one next spring. But if you're interested, check out thier website. They have 5K races in different locations all over. www.thezombierun.com/

There's a zombie run in October that I want to do. I even got my husband interested and he doesn't run (yet!)...of course right now, he wants to volunteer to be a zombie over the running part, lol.

I'm doing a zombie run in May. I think it's going to be a blast!

I just signed up to do the Run for Your Lives 5K Zombie run in New England on July 27th. In order to start training I need to be home to run!

I also just started rehearsal for a musical, so finding the time to run and get ready for MY FIRST 5K EVER is going to be a challenge!

Maybe I can sing while I run.... emoticon

I am doing this in May!! I was hesitant at first because I am scared of scary stuff..I hate scary movies and haunted houses (but I love Halloween and shows like Dexter and True Blood..hmm), My best friend told me she wanted to do this for her birthday so I agreed. And now I am PUMPED! I am so exited! We are on week 3 of training. We have been doing upper body strength training too because there are some pretty intense obstacles. I think these types of runs are the way to go because you get a full body work out instead of just the running part. We have to drive to the closest one but it only about an hour and a half so we are going to make a weekend out of it :)

Part of me wants to try it out, but the other part of me is scared that I will punch or attack a volunteer out of sheer terror!

I love that app!

I'd really like to do one next year in my area. I'm brand new to running so hopefully I'll be ready for it. I downloaded an app called Zombies, Run! 5k. Trying it out this week.

I wish there was one near me! I would get 'eaten' right away, but it looks as fun as all get out! Is anyone going to one of these runforyourlives runs?
