Run For Your Lives!


The world as we knew it is gone. Welcome to Run For Your Lives, the original zombie infested 5K obstacle run. The apocalypse is here and it’s time to see if you’ve got what it takes to survive. Speed alone won’t save you in this race. Runners will have to use all of their cunning and wits to navigate the series of challenging obstacles and escape the horde of the undead waiting to claim you as one of their own.
Waiting at the end of this adventure is the Safe Zone, home of the Apocalypse Party. In this one-of-a-kind festival (complete with food, live bands, a DJ, and of course beer) runners get to celebrate their survival or imminent zombie transformation.

All of the above from youtube & the official website (click the link above!)
 I found all of this after watching an episode of X-Play where one of the hosts went & actually participated in the race. It looked like something I would love so I did some research & found all of this information. Apparently this obstacle is going from state to state. I hope they keep doing it because I won't be moving back to the states for at least another year & I would love so much to try this race. I've always been a bit of an adrenaline junkie & running from people who are transformed into such realistic looking zombies would be the ultimate challenge!

Elle Cover Girl: Emma

Anytime I see Emma Watson as a cover girl I just have to buy it! She's my idol! I'm stuck at home thanks to a fever so I'm relaxing with a little snack & my magazine! These strawberry galbo minis are pretty yummy if you like artificial strawberry! I like the original better though!

Ikea Island Hidden Hike

Last month on Ashley & I's Ikea Island adventure, we found a little hike hidden behind some farming fields. It was made to reach some graves that were at the end of the stairs, however it also led to an amazing view of the ocean! It was a really rough trail but the beautiful blue ocean was definitely worth it.

Ikei Island Vestige

A few weekends ago my friend Ashley & I went on a little road trip to Ikei island. Ashley knew a little spot that had a vestige & burial spots. It was very low to the ground & we had to bend to get inside. I kind of regret going inside because I had a headache long after I entered the vestige. It was very creepy & even looking at these pictures gives me the chills!!!

Arin Krin

A few weeks ago my friend Ashley & I went on a little island adventure & ended up going completely the opposite direction of where we had intended to go. We ended up in the deep south of Okinawa but eventually we found our way back to the main road. To reward ourselves after our crazy road trip, we went to Arin Krin, the famous garlic house in Okinawa on 58 near Camp Kinser. Arin Krin is very popular amongst Americans stationed here & when we got there, the place was packed full of military families. They have a variety of garlic flavored foods from pizza, chicken, curry, pasta, potatoes & more. The food is not bad & for a reasonable price. The servers are nice as well. The only thing I could complain about is their parking so if you're going, the smaller the car the better! It was a very satisfactory end to our little road trip.
