    I ran the 24 hour option at the Day of the Dead Zombie Ultras managed by Clint Burleson of Deadrunning.net. Clint has extensive experience as a race director as he was the original founder of Mainly Marathons, so he can run a race in his sleep. I wasn’t expecting much from the course, as it was advertised as a 1.1 miles out and 1.1 mile back on a paved path along the Rio Grande River in Las Cruces, NM. I was a little disappointed though, as there were just a couple of places where you could see the river because of dense shrub-like willow trees along the edge of the river. I was also surprised that there weren’t very many birds along the course, but maybe it was too late in the year. You could see the very stark and rugged Organ Mountains in the distance from the course, but the main attraction were the people that were running. Larry Macon, who holds the record for the most lifetime marathons was there, along with Jim Simpson, Eugene DeFronzo, Eugene Bruckert, and Ila Brandli who have collectively run over a thousand marathons. There was a good assortment of real foods such as sandwiches, and water and a Gatorade-like drink available for hydration. The air was crisp in the morning, but warmed up to nice running temperatures in the afternoon. The medals were very nicely designed and were a plus. All in all, it was a good day’s worth of running.
