Rules to Live By, and Zombies

So, I think zombies make for awesome movies.  I recently found out that zombies also make for awesome races.  While I unfortunately will be unable to participate when the Run For Your Lives 5K Obstacle Course Zombie Race comes to Boston in May, it is still fun to think about.

I also enjoy preparedness guides.  The CDC has their own version of a guide and even advertises.  If they are serious about zombies, maybe the rest of should be too.  When the end comes, they will probably know about the zombie virus before we do.


 Even my insurance company offered tips as part of an ad campaign.  I have not yet checked to see what my coverage would be. If only someone would give us a concise list of rules to follow in the event of a zombie attack, that would be helpful.  But wait, someone did.  Have you seen Zombieland?  Goofy movie, but it’s great and full of lot of good advice for dealing with zombies and the everyday.  Some of my favorites:

  • Cardio: We all know we should work out to be healthy, but zombies really put cardio in perspective.  I don’t have to outrun the zombie, just you.
  • Double Tap: If your livelihood or life depends on you doing a job right, double check your work.  Wouldn’t want a shoddy effort to come back and bite you in the butt.
  • Bathrooms: I think we should all be more cautious in the bathroom.  A lot of injuries happen in there.
  • Limber Up: Stretching is an important part of any workout routine.  When play with the kids or swinging at the un-dead, you can easily injure yourself if your body is not prepared.
  • Enjoy the Little Things: Your day may have involved people trying to eat you or just run you down, so take a minute to do something that makes you happy.
