As the weather gets worse, it gets harder and harder to get outside and go for that run like you promised you would go on after that second donut.

“I like to run but sometimes it’s hard to make it fun,” says Ferris Brennan ’15.

However, no need to give up on that boring run quite yet. There is a new app out thats goal is to give you that extra push on your run. It is called Zombies, Run! It is described as an “ultra-immersive running game and audio adventure,” according to the App Store. There are a variety of different options on the app to get you going. You can create a story that connects all your various runs into one big challenge. This can push you to run farther and for a longer period of time.

The sounds and instructions of the story and the zombies are told to you through your headphones while you run. It is an expensive app at  $3.99, but can you put a price on good health? The app’s goal to make exercise fun and exciting could make real changes in a lot of people’s lives. So next time someone asks you who you are running from you can truthfully answer– zombies.
