Hello, my name is Jessica, and I love zombies.

I’ve been a fan of zombie movies and fiction since I was a kid, and don’t even get me started on The Walking Dead … oh man, I love zombies. Do you know what else I love? Running.

Wouldn’t it be great if I could somehow be chased by zombies while I run to make me go a little bit faster and train a little bit harder? Well maybe not real, flesh-eating zombies. Maybe toothless, armless zombies would be best … but I digress.

You’re not going to believe what I found to motivate you in your run/jog/walk routine. It’s an awesome new app for iPhone (coming soon to Android) called Zombies, Run!

You tie your shoes, put on your headphones, take your first steps outside. You’ve barely covered 100 yards when you hear them. They must be close. You can hear every guttural breath, every rattling groan—they’re everywhere. Zombies. There’s only one thing you can do: Run!

Check out this video from the creators at Six To Start for a preview of zombie awesomeness:

Run, don’t walk to the app store to download Zombies, Run! With this super easy way to motivate you to get up off your butt and run, there’s no reason to skip this app—unless you’re prone to nightmares.
