I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned this on the blog, but Jay and I absolutely adore Walking Dead. I fought against watching the show for a couple of years to be honest, I don’t love guts or gore and I certainly don’t love zombie, so no point in me watching. Right? Wrong. Walking Dead is almost totally not about zombies. Yes, there’s zombies in every episode, but it’s more of a story line about people and their morals and relationships and finding out exactly what they will or will not do when pushed over their limits.
Anyways, when Melissa & Shea insisted we sign up for a 5K Zombie run in Bellingham, we hummed and hawed, but worst case, even with my injuries, I can walk 5K so we said yes. Coming up with a running costume is always a challenge, but with the zombie theme, we couldn’t resist dressing up as Walking Dead characters. Jay was Rick Grimes, and I was kind of a person, kind of a place, I was Terminus.
Of course, if you don’t watch Walking Dead, our outfits really didn’t make any sense.
