Here is a photo of my son and I after the race. He came in first place in his age division. He ran the first wave.
My son and his girlfriend who was my zombie partner in the fields.
My two sons finishing the race together.

My youngest son at the finish line. Poor kid broke his finger the day before the race.
There were 75 zombies and 200 runners. This is the 2nd year this race was held. I think next year I will run the race! It looked like so much fun for the runners. They really strategized how they were going to get through my zombie partner and I! I was the blocker and she was the chaser. Many people were walking by the time they reached us since we were near the 2 mile marker. The ones who ran out of their flags just walked by while the ones who had the flags sprinted past us. Also, the people who did not have their flags formed barriers around those who did. Other times, the people waited in front of us until more racers came by and they sprinted as a group.
My ankle held up, yay!
