Zombies, Run!

Here’s how to get the most from your workout: add adrenaline. Lots of it. That’s what pumps up the heart rate while watching 28 Days Later. The Zombies, Run! app is already available for $2.99 from the iTunes store and should be available for Android devices soon. The idea is that you play this “game” while doing your regular outdoor walking or running workout—it’s the ultimate in zombie-apocalypse preparedness—and it breaks in to your playlist to give news about the zombie plague, including instructions to “Run!” when the zombies approach. It’s billed as a “running game and audio adventure.” We call it sensible planning for the non-zombie-chow class.
