Run for Your Lives! The Race... #giveaway

 Run for Your Lives!  Zombie Preparedness Team Member: Mindy Artze

Yep, you read that correctly! I am a member of the ZPT, Zombie Preparedness Team. I hope I can handle it! I won't lie to you, zombies freak me out!

Run for Your Lives is a 5K obstacle race like no other and they take place all over the country! I LOVE obstacles races, but this one brings on a whole new challenge that I will admit I am a bit fearful of. Zombies will be chasing me in order to get my flags. Yes, that is right... Zombies... chasing... EHH!!!

Zombies will be chasing all of the racers trying to snatch their brains (which will actually be flags tied around their waists) before they reach the finish line of this 5K obstacle race. People will be in zombie costumes, and from what I understand, the crazier the costume, the juicier the brain... (I just made that up... sorry could not resist.) But I do LOVE the idea of dressing up like a zombie! Creepy! But fun!


The best part of this race is that it is really about teamwork. It's not about being first, it's about getting to the finish line with flags. So staying with your team, in a pack is going to be the best bet. The rules of the event clearly state that Zombies aren't allowed to touch the racers, so that is a bit of a relief.

Since I began CrossFit at CrossFit Blackbeard, I have a newfound toughness and strength. I feel that I can accomplish anything, so this race was something I had to do... I have to cross this off my bucket list. And I will!

This obstacle course is like nothing you have ever done before. Waiting at the end of this 5K zombie infected course is an apocalypse party that is "to die for!"

  3. I've been begging them to come to my area since I found this race. I actually just suggested 2 possible sites for their 2014 schedule. I wish that there was one closer to me so I could enter. :-(

  8. I've done Run for Your Lives before, as a zombie and a racer. It's a ton of fun (although, I will say, there is some contact between zombie and racer - hard to reach for a flag from a fleeing runner without some occasional collisions!)

    1. That makes sense! I look forward to doing this and learning more about it. Which was more fun? Being the zombie or being the runner?
