I’ve articulated my fear of running on Mitcham Common on a number of occasions (try here and here). You’d think I’d know better than to attempt a twilight run with zombie accompaniment but it seems not.
Spring is a crap time for accountants and I feel like I’ve been strapped to a ledger for the past 14 days. I haven’t run or exercised for 7 days solid so I was keen to get out and bounce around the common despite the disappearing sun and the heavy clouds.
I was deep into the common when the first Zombie attack was announced. The mangled pilot, killed in the crash that landed us in Abel township some days ago was “re-animating”. Nice.
Fresh zombies are fast runners apparently and this one was chasing me.
That common carries enough horror without the addition of the undead. I’m not sure if my heart can cope with the excitement.
