Running from Zombies!

I have an inner geek, and she's getting bigger as the years go on, especially when it comes to sci-fi and zombies.  By the way,  I liked zombies WAY before it was the trendy thing to do.  Just sayin'.  In fact, here's a picture of me with Judith O'Dea (Barbra) from "Night of the Living Dead." 

What a thrill to meet her!

Imagine my excitement when I was made aware of a  product that took my love of running and love of zombies and mashed them together!   Behold - the  Zombies, Run! app.

Zombies, Run! is an app for the iPhone that is described as a "running game and audio adventure."   This app plays a story line through your headphones as you're running.  It's the zombie apocalypse and you're "Runner 5."  Your job is to run around and gather supplies for your hideout.  Oh, and why you're doing this, and you're being chased by zombies.  How fun!

They already have t-shirts out!  Where's my wallet....
The story continues each time you run. The app is also supposed to keep track of distance, pace, time, and calories through integration with RunKeeper.   The one unfortunate thing about this app is... it's not out yet.  UGH! But, I've preordered it and stay tuned for a full review when it comes out next month.  In the meantime, check out the video on their webpage. 

Are any of you out there zombie fans like me? Are any of my readers interested in getting this app when it comes out?  Leave a comment below and let me know :-)
