Saturday morning the girls and I headed to the RUN FOR YOUR LIVES 5K in Brooklyn. It was cool because it got us in the Halloween spirit and it was a fundraiser for Brain Disease Research. We were Stumblers, so we manned a section of the race as zombies.The runners would approach and we would try to grab their flags so that they would die. It was hard to get the flags- they were so fast, and by the time they got to us, they had learned a thing or two about dodging zombies.
Lolly got really good-I think she ended up with 25 flags. One runner said:” I can’t believe I just got killed by a 9 year old!” We had a great time. I was so sore the next morning—who knew grabbing for flags would be a great upper arm and buttocks workout! I am regretting putting the glue on my face, my forehead is still pretty irritated several days later.
