1. "Run For Your Lives" 5K. Here's the premise... You gather up your friends and try to conquer an obstacle-laden 5K course while being chased by ZOMBIES. Seriously. ZOMBIES! The zombies don't actually eat your brains, but they will try to take one of the three flags around your waist. I don't run. I hate running. However, I think running from zombies would be too much fun to pass up.
There are 11 races across the country this year and one happens to be in our own backyard (Baltimore). Last year's race had over 10,000 participants. I just found out that you can also sign up to be a Zombie too! I am all over this. You can either be a chaser (running Zombie) or a stumbler (slow moving Zombie). I just checked with the hubby and if I can get a sitter for the weekend (uh... Suni?), you'll find us at the November race. Any good ideas? Prom queen zombie? Bride zombie? Oh, to be undead!!
This should be great training for the apocalypse...
2. The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. If you haven't seen this Oscar-winning wonderful animated 15-minute short, you must. It is available via YouTube and absolutely free. A combination of The Wizard of Oz, Hurricane Katrina and an old Buster Keaton movie, the short is visually stunning and will leave the booklover with a lump in her throat. Once you've fallen in love with the short, you'll want to go check out their iPad app. I'll off to download it now!
