Team ZIP educates runners about power of beef

Amanda Nolz

Runners’ feet pound against the pavement as they check off one mile, two miles, 10 miles and 26 miles. Whether a runner favors a short 5K or is training for a full 26-mile marathon, there is a growing trend amongst athletes in discussing dietary choices for a healthier lifestyle.

That’s why it’s so important for beef producers to be part of the conversation, which is the main focus of Team ZIP (zinc, iron and protein), a group of runners who believe in the power of protein in the land of lean beef. Members of Team ZIP demonstrate that beef gives athletes the strength they need to cross the finish line. These members participate in running, cycling and triathlon events across the country.

One of the members of Team ZIP is Calli Thorne, a cattle rancher from Watford City, ND. As a marathon runner and beef producer, Thorne combines her two passions into one dynamic campaign for beef.
