We first heard about zombie runs just the other day, and we've got to say that the sooner Charleston gets one on its 2012 calendar, the better. According to the article we read, it works like this: A zombie run is a lot like your standard road race, except some runners are runners and others are, um, zombies. The regular runners are outfitted with three red flags, similar to flag football, which the pursuing zombies try to pull off. If the zombies pull all three flags off of a runner's body, he's out of the race. We don't know about you, but that sounds like a blast.
