He was the guy who was running a 10 k race and had his picture taken randomly while running. The person who took the picture uploaded it and posted it on Reddit with the caption “Ridiculously Photogenic Guy” – it went viral and Ridiculously Photogenic Guy, also known as Zeddie Little, became an internet sensation.
Meet my friend Jessica.
That could be the most spectacular running photo EVER. When she tweeted it to me I was all “You need to buy it! Now!” and this is what is awesome about Jessica. She did! Her purchasing this photo and posting it on her blog put her in my Cool Chicks book. Afterwards I left a comment which said “We need to do a zombie apocalypse run.” And she responded with this.
You guys, it’s a Zombie Apocalypse run! A 5k obstacle course where zombies chase you while you run and they try to kill you! But not really because how would they sell beer at the beer tent afterwards if everyone was dead. I mean, I’m assuming they have a beer tent because what goes better with a zombie apocalypse and obstacles than cold beer.
The whole thing is so exciting but I’m totally bummed because even though I said I was giving up distance running, I signed up to do the Island Girl Run on September 23rd with my friend Natalie even though she said she would never run anything further than 5 k but I convinced her because I’m not ridiculously photogenic but I’m ridiculously persistent. Also, I mentioned beer and Natalie was all, I’m in. This is how I choose my friends…by seeing who will post awful pictures and drink beer. So far it’s worked well.
The thing is, the Island Girl Run is the day after the Zombie run. So now I’m wondering if it’s too much to do both runs.
These are first world problems, right?
Oh, and to make Jessica feel better here’s a picture of me doing shakey face which is pretty much the best drinking game ever.
p.s. Jessica is quite pretty in real life. Seriously. You can see regular pictures of her here where she documents her journey as she trains for a full marathon even though she was told she would never walk again without assistance, let alone run, after a horrific car accident. Hey, wait! Maybe she is a zombie.
