The Hubbo and I love a good zombie movie and we are insanely addicted to TV series, The Walking Dead. All this talk about the Zombie Apocalypse with the movie World War Z coming out soon, has us talking about what we'll need to do to be prepared to defend ourselves. We aren't paranoid, just getting prepared!
Lately I've been thinking about preparing a Bug Out Bag and it hit me! My running  bag is perfect for this! Runners are actually way more prepared for an apocalyptic event than most people and here's why.

Picture
1. Shoes. Your Running Bag (RB) and Bug Out Bag (BOB) need to have a good pair of shoes that can help you travel several miles. My running bag always has my shoes in there.

2. Socks. You don't want to be traveling cross country style with painful blisters on your feet do you? Every RB and BOB needs a good pair of socks.

Picture
3. Water bottle/belt. If you are like me you have both in there. Water is essential for life so obviously you'll need these in your RB and BOB.


Picture
4. Nutrition. I have a TON of nutrition products in my RB. I could probably live a couple days alone just on my running nutrition that I have stock piled in there.


Picture
5. Workout Towel. Even in the Zombie Apocalypse you'll need a towel to dry off or to clean wounds with.

6. Tech Shirt. Tech shirts are good for layering, good for keeping you cool, and good for not causing chaffing which could turn into a painful and infected mess during a wide spread Zombie problem.

Picture
7. Blinky Light/Head Lamp - Use this tool with caution. You don't want to draw the attention of hungry zombies, but you do want to draw the attention of the people trying to rescue you! And you know, seeing is cool too.



Picture
8. iPod - How else are you going to drown out the sound of zombies moaning and eating people???



Picture
9. Sweat Band - You can't get sweat or your hair in your eyes when you are in hand-to-hand combat with a Zombie. You'll lose. Duh.



Picture
10. Rock Tape or KT Tape - Good for fixing up injuries.

11. Pepper Spray -While there is no scientific research on if Pepper Spray will affect a zombie or not, it sure can slow down an enemy so you can get away! Jk! Don't do that! Be sure to love thy neighbor during a Zombie attack!

Picture
Here are a few items you wouldn't normally find in a RB but you might want to consider adding. You know, just in case the Zombies attack your town!

1. Sword/Machete - Everyone knows the only way to kill a zombie is with a head wound. Plus a gun will run out of bullets. Swords and machetes don't.

2. Walkie - Talkie - Preferably linked to the National Guard

3. Bike - If you can fit a bike in your RB, more power to ya! Let me know how you did it. Bikes  make a good travel choice being as they do not require gas. Just human power!

VERY educational. This may be why I bought the steamer trunk since I don't have a rb.

True, you could just hide in the trunk, assuming it doesn't make you super sick! :)

Brilliant!!!! Nice to know I'm already a few steps ahead of the zombie apocalypse! After all ... Rule One of Zombieland ...
Have you read World War Z? Great book. I'm dubious about Pitt ... but I'm a sucker for a zombie flick.

Thanks Kathy! I haven't read it, but the Hubbo has read it and several other zombie books including Max Brooks' Zombie Survival Guide!

You live in OK, I can't believe you didn't already have an emergency bag!
Glad you are now prepared, and FYI, I'm pretty sure those Zombies lack endurance, I think they're more 5K'ers.

Eh, in Oklahoma when a tornado comes you just run to the bathroom and put a helmet on if you have it. When the storm passes you don't really have to worry about your neighbors eating you. You just need to make sure you can get out of your house and that the house is still standing.

An extremely popular and versatile fabric that is always in style, linen is a favorite with a majority of people. People tend to prefer this natural fabric over other fabrics because of its comfort since it is made from natural fiber, and permits the body to breathe, and it is popular in areas with hot climates.
