Mission 9: Costa Rica
If you haven’t treated yourself to the app Zombies, Run! yet, don’t wait! Get it now; so much fun. And if you are running from zombs, I gotta tell you: Mission 9 is so so so good. The story takes an unexpected, poignant turn, and it’s brilliant. I felt sheer elation at the end of the mission when I finally ran through the gates to Abel. Naomi Alderman, the author of the story (and some badass novels that I’ll be telling you more about soon), did such a good job weaving this tale. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
As if the story and the universe were in collusion, the sky this morning was moody, a dramatic mix of sharp sunshine and massive dark clouds. The waves on the Pacific were small and choppy, making white foam around my ankles as I splashed along. And just when the Zombies, Run! story reached a dramatic peak, one of my favorite running songs was delivered up by my iPod.
Here are a few snaps from the last 12 hours:
