Running Dead 5k

We are proud to be, not only sponsoring – but participating, in Southern Oregon Goodwill’s 2016 Running Dead 5k!

Registration is included in the new well‘s exclusive Back to School Boot Camp! 

zombie blogAbout The Event

The Running Dead 5K is a charity event to benefit Goodwill’s job training programs in the Southern Oregon region including Douglas, Jackson, Josephine, Klamath and Lake counties and Siskiyou county in CA.

It’s NOT a timed event, but an experience set to begin at dusk. Zombies can be a bit scary so this is a 12 and over event. It is a non-violent, just-for-fun race. The only grabbing on the course will be for flags — for safety reasons no strollers, bikes, skateboards, or other wheeled equipment is permitted for runners.

The 5K course will culminate with the Apocalypse Party for runners, their supporters and general public at Common Block Brewing Company. The party features music, contests, prizes, food, beverage, vendor, games and contests.

How It Works

If you register as a human, your ultimate goal is to cross the finish line with at least one “life” remaining — you start with a belt with three flags. Humans who survive with one flag will be quarantined and will vie for King of the Survivors. If you sign on as a running zombie, your aim is to collect as many lives (flags) as you can for the purpose of becoming King of the Zombies at the after-party, the Apocalypse Party at Common Block Brewing Company.

It’s an event like no other in Southern Oregon.

Check out our Boot Camp to go from Couch to 5k just in time for October 22!

Camp for Your Health

Healthy camping. Sound too good to be true? If you have been changing the way you eat, exercise and live, then visions of being trapped in the woods for a couple nights with potato chips, hot dogs and s’mores are probably the daunting visions that resonate in your mind whenever “going camping” is mentioned.

Have no fear! Camping for the weekend doesn’t have to mean that you have to throw away weeks of hard work. Actually, getting away from the stresses of day to day life can provide you with the relaxation you need to refresh your mind and body!

To keep your camping experience healthier, here are some simple tips:

Make a menu before you go. Try to at least concentrate on what you’ll be making for breakfast and dinner, the meals that the family will be most likely be eating together. Try to make the meals fun and involve everyone!

Stay active. Search for areas with plenty to do like hiking trails and games. If possible, bring your bikes!

Make sure you have plenty of fresh drinking water. If you’ll be staying at a site that doesn’t have full hookups, you may want to consider bringing your own water; and drink plenty of it! Staying hydrated is vital to your health especially if the weather is hot.

Don’t forget the sunscreen and bug repellent! Even the best of trips can quickly turn into nightmares with the pain of a sunburn or the attack of hungry mosquitoes!

With just a little planning, camping can be a time to reflect on nature, get back to the basics of life and rediscover the things that are really important.

Happy Camping!

Vision Journal Workshop

Healthy eating and exercise are not the only factors you have to consider when losing weight. Usually when you start a weight loss program, you have intentions to stay on plan, but outside factors often get in the way of your success. Having a solid foundation, positive attitude and specific set goals will help aid in your weight loss efforts. In our Vision Journal workshop, we will touch on each of the subjects listed above. The journey to health and wellness is tough, but with a great support system and hard work, anything is possible!

For more information on our Vision Journal Workshop, contact the new well at 541-471-2224, we are here for you.
