Want to know how YOU can benefit the Huntsman Cancer Institute? Run for your life from the snarling undead through the Salt Lake Fair Grounds. :)
My husband and I are attending the Night of the Running Dead, a 5k race where participants can sign up as either "human" or "zombie," and dress accordingly. The humans get to start two minutes before the zombies, therefore creating 3.1 miles of zombies-chasing-humans for the joy of all spectators.
Fake Person: Gee whiz Charlie, I didn't know you were a runner!
Charlie: I'm not! :D
Yep. I can only run about one mile before crapping out like the pathetic athletic* I am. I think I jogged two miles once, but that was when I was in clogging and actually had routine cardio in my life.** So I'm going to the gym and the local track trying to improve by October 15th. (Yesterday I could only run for about five minutes because I had just eaten pasta and chocolate chips for dinner. Yeah, I'm smart.)
BUT, I figure having a hoard of undead chasing me will encourage me to keep going. If all else fails, there's also a one mile creep n' crawl (for the wusses).
Any Utah readers should consider signing up! The money goes to a good cause, and you'd only have three weeks to train, which means I at least won't be the most pathetic runner there. C'mon . . . help a girl out. ;)
**BTW, running is SO BORING. I don't know how people do it for miles on end...
