People are in to Zombies. No. Really, people are in to them. This much was quite obvious when, this past weekend, when myself and 9.999 fellow undead enthusiasts travelled to picturesque Darlington, MD to participate in the first ever Run For Your Lives Zombie 5k.
That’s right, it’s a 5k where you’re chased by zombies, in the woods, through occasional obstacles. And the number I mentioned earlier is no exaggeration. More than 10,000 people signed up for this race, which means that there are a lot of people really into zombies, OR, there are a lot of people who like running 5k’s, no matter what the theme.
