To-Do Thursdays:

Many moms are working on things to do with Spring Break coming up next week, but I know a lot of moms are also revving up for the huge number of runs that are coming up - including this weekend. Just know that running is no longer a race, but a fun activity with everything from zombies to zebras. 

So get on your running gear and check out this rundown of fun runs happening in DFW:

To-Do Thursdays: DFW Fun Runs with Zombies to Zebras

Are you a Walking Dead fan or obsessed with zombies, but now you've got a run to get primed in case we the world gets taken over by them! 
  • Before the race, you will be given a belt with 4 flags attached to it. These flags represent your health. During the race, zombies will be scattered across the course to eat your brains… err get those flags. One zombie can only get one flag from you.
  • No hitting, throwing or real biting allowed.
  • Upon crossing the finish line, you need at least one health flag intact in order to be eligible for prizes. Should you lose all your health flags, you are still allowed to finish the race and your time will be recorded but you shall be considered “dead” and no longer be eligible for a cash prize. Turn in your belt and get tickets for the non-cash prizes.
  • If you find yourself out of health flags, you are not considered a zombie and are not allowed to start pulling at other runner’s flags.
Survive the challenge? You can score money, glow sticks, medals, music and free beer.
