Zombie Apocalypse Run

Sarah and I ran in the Zombie Apocalypse Run yesterday evening.  It was full of helicopters out "hunting" for zombies, people in hazmat suits, and military out to keep survivors safe.  There were even 3 huge machines out showing off their impressive "punkin chunkin" skills.  It was awesome!

You could choose to be a Zombie or a Survivor.

We chose zombie.

All survivors had velcro flags around their waists and if they crossed the finish line with a flag they survived.

 It was a little over a 5k and the survivors got a 2 min head start.  It was a trail run and was gorgeous!  We went through the spooky woods, corn stalks and farms.

It was a lot of fun growling and having people scatter when you caught up to them.  I'd chase some of them down for a while till they tired out then go for their flags.

Both Sarah and I got a few kills under our belt and had a great time.  One of Sarah's kills fought back, got his flag from Sarah and ran off course into the fields.  (Sarah here--Aaron is being modest.  He got lots of kills and I almost had 2.  Aaron was one of the very first "zombies" in.  We went to Olive Garden after to re-fuel.  You should have seen the looks and heard the comments.  One old man was disgusted and had some choice words for Aaron.  It was great.)
