“Boot Camp has encouraged me to step outside my comfort zone to exercise. I drive by Table Rock twice a day and have now made it to the top. The first hike I had to stop quite often just to breath. My new goal is to make it to the top with no stops. Each trip has been easier. My strength, stamina and breathing has improved markedly. We all started out as strangers and have become friends. The team captains are supportive and encouraging. At 60+ I even went to a P90X class after Hiking Roxy Anne in the snow. Sure beats sitting home watching TV!”

About 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!
Strawberries are not only juicy, beautiful and delicious, they offer a wide range of health benefits. Here are some great reasons to add strawberries to your diet:
Immunity Booster– Strawberries are a great source of vitamin C. One serving of strawberries contain 51.5 mg. Vitamin C is a well-known immunity booster as well as a powerful, fast working antioxidant.
Promote Eye Health– The antioxidant properties in strawberries may also help to prevent cataracts, which can lead to blindness in older age. The vitamin C also protects eyes from exposure to free radicals caused from the suns UV rays.
Cancer Prevention– Along with vitamin C, strawberries contain the antioxidants, lutein, and zeathancins. These antioxidants are scavengers to free-radicals and neutralize the potentially negative effect they can have on our cells. Keep Wrinkles at Bay– The vitamin C found in strawberries is vital to the production of collagen which helps to improve skins elasticity and resilience.
Fight Heart Disease– Strawberries contain powerful heart health boosters called ellagic acid and flavonoids – or phytochemicals that benefit heart health in various ways including lowering LDL (bad cholesterol) and also providing an anti-inflammatory effect.
Boost fiber– Strawberries contain about 2 grams of fiber per serving, helping to promote colon health.
Aid in Weight Management– Strawberries are low in calories at only around 28 calories per half cup serving.

If you have changed 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. To keep your camping experience healthy, here are some simple tips:
Make a menu before you go. 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! Below are some recipes that you might want to consider!
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.
