Speaking of the Zombie Apocalypse...

Back in September of 2010, I posted about the Zombie Workout. With my recent return to the gym after a far-too-long absence, the Zombie Workout popped into my head again. The Cadaver gave me the vocabulary word needed for this workout: parkour.
I didn't run from this zombie, since he was so polite, and took a picture with my Ape.
Today, after I got done with my workout (30 minutes of rowing, 15 minutes of walk/jog, 30 minutes of chest, back and arms), I did my post-workout stretching routine. As I was sitting in my giant puddle of stinky, un-sexy sweat, it occurred to me that with the popularity of The Walking Dead, a Survive the Zombie Apocalypse workout class would be a slam dunk for any fitness club, even in my town.


So, after my stretch, I ambled over to one of the managers and asked him to pull it up on the internet, because I thought it would make a great addition to my club. He seemed enthused about the idea, too! We'll see if anything comes of it.


Since then, I discovered there's a 5k obstacle run in The Bloodshed Brothers's territory, called "Run for Your Lives!" There are additional locations in Pennsylvania, Colorado, Indiana, and elsewhere, so click the link to see if you might have one near you. There's even a Run For Your Lives promotional video!


I know anyone who can complete a triathlon is pretty badass, but surviving the Zombie Apocalypse? That is badass and one louder, isn't it?

  2. Wow! Cool app. I may try that one!
    In a couple of weeks, I'll be starting a "boot camp." More details in an upcoming post...

    Thanks, Chad!
