Publisher's Summary

Undead: a reanimated corpse with a craving for human flesh.
Ultramarathon: any footrace longer than a traditional marathon (26.2 miles).
For ultrarunners Kate and Frederico, a typical Saturday morning is spent pounding out a 20 to 30-mile "fun run." It's during one of their runs that an insidious illness descends upon northern California, turning humans into flesh-shredding zombies.
When Kate receives a desperate call from her son, Carter, she and Frederico flee their hometown and set out to help him. The only problem? Carter attends college over 200 miles away and the freeways - clogged with car wrecks, zombies, and government blockades - are impassable. Running back roads and railroad tracks becomes their only means of travel, but neither of them has ever run so far before.
As pain, injuries, hunger, and fatigue plague them, getting to Carter and staying alive seem impossible. It's either outrun the undead or become one of them, and for Kate, death is not an option.

I remember when....

It feels like 80% of this story is told as "I remember when" stories that really only contribute to character development, so in that sense, I would say it's a bit overdone. Bonus point for having the characters run through the zombie apocalypse, literally on foot. But otherwise, I would say it's pretty average.

Different Strategy

I liked Undead Ultra.The author took a different strategy in surviving the zombie outbreak. Instead of finding a crew, ammo, and a safe place to hunker down, the main character just goes for it and runs around the drama. The main character is reflective, self-aware, honest, and likable. This book doesn't follow the typical zombie narrative, but it didn't go so far outside of it that it wasn't believable.
