If you’re a normal person, chances are getting yourself worked up to go running is no easy feat. A new app hopes to change that by adding an x factor to your next jog: zombies. Zombies, Run! is a health app that tests you physically and mentally, simulating a zombie horde chasing after you, the runner. Combining missions with runs while tracking distance and achievements, Zombies, Run! aims to make fitness an ounce more fun, or at least dramatic. Missions exhort you to run along a set distance to some destination and as you run you “pick up” useful items. Pause the app anytime and continue fighting for survival later to the sound of whatever playlist you set.
You can read more or download the app from the iTunes store here for the price of $8—a little steep, but humanity is at stake.
