In late April a group of 40+ beef runners delivered the "power of protein" message in the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon. Oklahoma Beef Council exec Heather Buckmaster (at left, second from right) participated in the half marathon and pulled together beef runners for the full marathon and marathon relay teams (below left, the Kingfisher Relay Team) for the event mormorializing those lost in the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995.
This past weekend former National Beef Ambassador and BEEF Daily Blogger Amanda Nolz ran in her first-ever half marathon in Brookings, SD, with her sister Courtney. Amanda reported in this morning with this note and the following photos.
Hey Daren, I have attached a few photos of my sister Courtney and I for the Team ZIP webpage. The half went great. I finished in under two hours, which was my goal! I will definitely run another, if I have the opportunity. I wrote about it in BEEF Daily today, if you want to read the full report. Thanks again for all of the support and advice!
Have a great day!
