Exercise: Fun?!

I've never been one to just head outside and start jogging. If you read my last post, then by now you know about my "lifestyle change" that I've recently undertaken. Even though I finally had the diet part down, I knew it was time to incorporate some exercise.

I was intrigued by a colleague's Facebook status update that he ran with an app he recently downloaded called "Zombies, Run!" The app, which is priced at $7.99, features a storyline intertwined with a playlist of your choice. During the first run I was informed that I was in the middle of a zombie apocalypse and I was the new "runner" for the township of survivors.

While you run (or walk and jog like I do), you could be chased by a mob of zombies. A beeping noise indicates how close they are and if they catch you, a few supplies could be taken away from you.

Here's the end result of my walk/jogging last night!

When you finish your run or walk, you can then build up your town with the supplies you've collected. I have to admit that the app was really fun and the storyline is super detailed. Once you complete your mission, there's a radio playlist that weaves a "radio" broadcast of two silly guys and your music. Even then, you can still collect supplies.

Overall I truly enjoyed it and woke up this morning to see what happened next. After a tour of the "base", I think I heard some zombies, so I decided to sprint.

Whatever it takes to get me moving!
