Okay, Friday night, I ran in the Dawn of the Dead Dash. It is a run like no other. The start takes place near a local adult beverage serving locale (no participants under 18 for this event and under 21 types have to get checked in outside...so this is one for the older folks). There is no set course and it happens after dark through the streets of an urban neighborhood. You are given checkpoints and those will only be manned for a limited time. Once you arrive, you are given a code that you must enter into your cell phone. You will then be given the location of the next checkpoint. Oh...and along the way, zombies hide and lurk...waiting to ambush the unwary. If your glowing necklace is removed, you become one of the infected and can join in the ambushing.
It makes for an interesting run. I was within about twenty feet of the third and final checkpoint when I was turned. That was after I had been cut off from my approach on two other attempts and had completely circled around. Darn thing jumped up out from between two cars and had me before I knew what happened.
Now, on to my contest...the response was good and even better, the contestants who voted agreed that it would be great to have one Grand Prize winner and allow everybody else to win books one and two of the Zomblog series. That means that all 10 eligible entrants are winners! So, all the names were written down and thrown into a hat. The Grand Prize winner is (drum roll, please):
So, the next step is to email with "I won, now give me free zombie stuff!" in your subject line at email@example.com. and I will send you your codes good for redemption at Audible.com. And I do how that a few of you will leave reviews on Audible. I would love to hear what you thought, not only of the story, but also of the narration.
