I’ve been a bit bummed out about not running in regular races these days, but COVID-19 has me sold on virtual races. It’s going to be a long time before I’m comfortable in a crowd again, so I’m glad to have the ZombiesRun app available. We’ve been pretty lucky throughout the pandemic. We sold our […]
I’ve often found myself wondering when a particular senator is up for re-election, or what party an obscure member of the House is from. So I looked around and found an API from ProPublica. Then I made a list.
If you can believe it, this is the tenth virtual race for “Zombies, Run!” and the quality has been consistent all the way. With COVID-19 locking us down, this format is far better than having a bunch of people gather in one place and send their perspiration everywhere.
Another hit from Six to Start and their Zombies Run app. This time, Runner 5 goes into a cursed carnival. Acting and writing are fantastic, as always. The race packet had an extra-special set of goodies this time. Since there’s a fortune teller in the story, you get tarot cards with character portraits. The photo […]
How can you not love zombies on a train? This one is about a fancy new super-fast train that was taking its first batch of passengers as the Zombie Apocalypse begins. It’s a bit of a bummer in a way, because it shows a society that was making some really cool advances in science and […]
This one takes place on Tomorrow Island, and it’s kind of a sci-fi twist on The Most Dangerous Game, which I think every series needs to do at least once. As usual, the acting and writing are fantastic. The whole thing is well worth the entry fee. Full disclosure: I’m writing these in November of […]
Hoo boy, I’ve been absent for a while now. There’s a suitably stupid reason, which of course I will share with you. I try to write these just after a race, but lately we’ve been trying to sell our house and that’s been a hell of a ride which will require its own book one […]
Okay, so… it’s been a while since I’ve written anything. That’s a cliche and I’m sorry to the four of you who still read these posts, but I gots reasons.
This one was tough. I haven’t done much over the winter, so 10K is a large number for me right now. Still, I have enough leftover fitness to knock it out, even though it’ll cost me later.
I’m tempted to just count these as one event now, but I run them on different days in different weather, so I suppose I’ll keep going with separate posts. This one will be a bit short, though.
Time for the 10K event in the ZombiesRun Fall 2016 Race! Just like last time, there are two leaderboards and two sets of results. There’s access to Rofflenet and training missions and everything else that we had last time, plus a few improvements to the website.
Here we are again, and I’m doing yet another virtual zombie race from Six to Start. These are a mixed bag for me, but I’m still happy to register for them. The ZombiesRun! app continues to improve, and so do these races.
Between farmers’ markets and overtime at my day job, I’ve almost given up on doing races. Sometimes we get lucky, though. I happened to have a Saturday free, and there was a race just a few blocks from my house. If I could get home to change and register within a half-hour, I was good to go.
