Run2Survive ZombieFest 5k(ish)

I participated in my first race where something chases you. This added a new dimension to a traditional run that made it a little more exciting too! The Energy Events Run2Survive ZombieFest 5k was really a fun run! I believe the race was closer to 4k than 5k, but the distance didn’t matter.

I got there wicked early and got a chance to stroll around the plaza to take in all of the vendors and booths. There was an area marked off for Zombie painting, to give the Zombies a more scary look, if they needed it.

Training for my Marathon Weekend Continues

Mid January I have the SoCal Spartan Beast on 1/17 and the next day the Star Wars Half Marathon at Disneyland or what I am calling my “Marathon Weekend” as I am guessing that I will be running close to a full marathon that weekend. I’ve upped my training with trail runs, as I found an entrance to a park that is three miles away so I can add in trail running into my longer runs. Within the trails of the park, I can quite easily run a half marathon in, so there’s plenty of trails to explore. I’ve nicknamed this run the “Grandma’s House” run.IMG_4534
Closer to the house is a .45 mile hill loop that is pretty steep that connects to a bridge and stairs for getting a hill workout on my smaller runs. I’ve noticed that the stairs have gotten a little easier, but the uphill run is still brutal. I’m glad the hill is there to train with!
