Today I Survived the Zombie Apocalypse

Yep, survived the zombie apocalypse.

Ok, maybe it’s more like I was thrust into the apocalypse by crash landing in a helicopter, subsequently having to run away from a zombie hoard while collecting important documents in a hospital that I rushed to the nearest safe house as they radioed me in.

Ok maybe it’s more like I purchased a $4 app from the app store called Zombies, Run!

Lately, the trend has been that vampires and werewolves are out, and zombies are in. Zombie related shows and games have been coming out in droves. The Walking Dead TV series adapted from the awesome comic series, the equally awesome Walking Dead Telltale series of Walking Dead video games, Plants vs Zombies, The Last of Us – the list goes on. One of my personal favorite conversation starters is, “How would you survive in the zombie apocalypse?” And basically anyone who’s anyone has got their own game plan worked out to a tee.

As a new iPhone user, I know you guys might be up to speed on this, but for those of you who haven’t heard, this is a game where you’re up to speed, or you’re dead.

I have only played the first mission so far, but, as testified by the fact that I’m writing about it, I thought it was one of the most creative ways I can imagine to make a boring run more fun.

You’re thrown right into the world with little explanation, caught right in the action the second the mission starts. It’s similar to a podcast, but between the dialogue the app plays your own music so you can get pumped with some tunes. You are told that you have been sent to help Abel Township, when the helicopter you’ve been riding in crashes, and you find yourself running through the forest. People in the town are communicating with you on headsets – you can hear them, but they can’t hear you. And they’re telling you to run for your life.

I had reached that point in my run where I’m thinking a fast walk and stopping to smell the roses sounds a lot nicer than trying to keep with my regular pace. Then the radio came on and told me a huge hoard of zombies was right behind me, replete with scary zombie sound effects. Stopping to smell the roses would mean I would be doing so with a bunch of zombies stopping to smell me. So I kept running, when I would have stopped without the storyline.

Recently I have been thinking about the fact that running and exercising can be viewed as one big game. You’re trying to beat your last high score of a personal record for running or lifting weights or biking, and fight off the evil calories.  This game takes it to the next level, where you literally run or die.

Now, instead of dreading the next big run, I can’t wait to see what zombie-filled mission I’m going to embark on next. So if you see someone on the trail sprinting, terrified for their life, that’s me, running from the zombies.
